Picking tips !

Do not pick berry’s in containers that has a smell or earlier have been used to 
keep any kind of chemicals like petrol or diesel etc.

Do not use plastic bags since this makes the berry’s ferment (turn into alcohol).

Keep berry’s dry and out of all kinds of wet conditions.

The berries cannot contain more than 1-2% of litter (twigs, leafs etc.)

We have maps of good berry areas where there should be plenty of berry’s, ask us and you receive a map.

Bring rubber boots, since it’s often wet in the woods.

Important !!! 
The berry’s cannot contain stone or hard material of any kind, it may break cleaning and 
sorting machinery that is very expensive

12 kg boxes in plastic can be bought from us for 15 SEK/each, 
you can sell them back to us when you leave for the same price (15 SEK).

Berry pickers/machines are about 200 SEK and you can sell them back to us for 
a price depending on the condition of the picker/machine
