HISTORY

Mike's Berries is the first strawberry farm we started in 1984.  We planted 1/4 of an acre of berries on our parent's farm and  had one employee (Jeannine's college-age sister, DeeDee).  Advertising was by word of mouth.  Over the years, our strawberry patch expanded to 5 acres.  After starting our farm in Merrill in 1987, we felt it was necessary to keep family at each farm.  Every year Jeannine manages the patch on her parent's farm (Mike's Berries) and Mike manages the Merrill farm (Engelberry Farm).  Our daughters, Michaela and Marissa, have grown up with strawberry season on Grandpa and Grandma's farm.  We are blessed to have supportive family throughout the year, but especially during our busy strawberry season.
