Our Announcement

πŸ“πŸŽ‰ Exciting News from Happy Critters Farm! πŸŽ‰πŸ“

Dear Beloved Community,

We are absolutely thrilled to announce that Happy Critters Farm is now the proud owner of the local strawberry field, formerly known as Spectrum Farm Strawberries (and Finke’s Berry Farm), right here in Carlton, MN!

Starting this May, Farmer Joe will be making the leap from his longtime employment in Superior to full-time strawberry farming, while Amanda continues her invaluable role homeschooling the kids and contributing her endless support to the Happy Critters operations.

This decision marks a significant milestone in our lives, one fueled by passion, dedication, and a shared vision for the future. We've had the privilege of knowing Strawberry Steve and Rita for many years, and Amanda has even managed their strawberry Facebook page during past picking seasons. With Farmer Joe's deep-rooted interest in soil health and fertility, coupled with his unwavering determination, we're excited to embark on this journey of learning and growth in the berry farming world.

We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to the previous owners, who have extended their unwavering support to ensure a smooth transition. Their commitment to preserving the legacy of the strawberry farm in our community and their willingness to guide us every step of the way fills us with immense gratitude.

As we gear up to take on the responsibilities of managing picking days, coordinating workers, tending to the fields, and serving our beloved customers, we are keenly aware of the invaluable role each of you plays in our journey. Your understanding, patience, and support mean the world to us.

We are dedicated to keeping you informed and engaged every step of the way. You can stay updated on our progress and adventures at The Berry Field through our website, newsletter, and Facebook page.

Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for your unwavering support.

With heartfelt gratitude,

Farmer Joe, Amanda, and the Happy Critters Family πŸŒ±πŸ“
