Elm Island Berry Farm is located just 6 1/2 miles southeast of Aitkin on Co. Rd. 12 (now called "Deer Street"). Pick your own strawberries on small fields surrounded by woods and natural hay fields. Bring your own 5 qt. ice cream pails for picking, or use ours. Pre-picked strawberries are available by ordering at least 2-3 hours before your desired pickup time. Hours vary, please call for daily updated picking conditions. Picking season is usually late June thru mid July.
