Berry Acres

Posted: Updated:

As the cooler weather approaches, fall activities are closer than you think. Minot's very own Berry Acres is ready to open up to the public this weekend.

 Pumpkins, pumpkins, and more pumpkins. It's starting to look more like fall at Berry Acres in Minot.

 Owner Calvin Berry is gearing up for this years fall season and putting their finishing touches on all the fun that they have to offer. 

"You just hope for good weekends as far as weather wise. It it's raining or windy or anything like that it's hard to get a good turnout," says Berry.

This year the berry's added some new attractions. There's an obstacle course made completely out of straw bales, there's also a new corn box and some additional slides built right into the bales of hay.

 "We wanted something for the kids to be able to do, something added in the fall," says Berry.

 Depending on the weather, they try and stay open until the middle October.

Even with the harsh winter we experienced, it didn't stop Berry Acres from having a great pumpkin crop this year.

 "We start our pumpkins the beginning of May. We seed the corn maze about May 12th so everything like that is right on schedule," says Berry.

There's only a little window when planting and Berry says it's all about timing.

 And as far as getting it in the field and as far as planting pumpkins it is always the first weekend in June," says Berry.

 Berry hopes that the weather is just right for opening weekend.

Berry Acres is open to the public starting this Saturday. Their Saturday hours are 9am to 7pm. And, Sundays they are open from noon to 7pm.
