Honeyberry (Haskap) Establishment and Production – Bernis and Jim Ingvaldson

By Practical Farmers of Iowa

Though not yet well-known in the U.S., honeyberries (haskaps) are a delicious, early-bearing, cold-hardy berry that grows well in Iowa. Bernis and Jim discuss the differences among varieties and share the details of how they plant, manage, harvest, pack and market honeyberries. They also share examples of honeyberry production systems on other farms.

Bernis and Jim are owners of The Honeyberry Farm, a U-pick operation near Bagley, Minnesota. They also operate HoneyberryUSA, an online mail order nursery specializing in cold-hardy small fruits, in operation since 2010.
