Strawberry Season

Strawberry Season

The beauty of strawberry season is upon us. Those sweet, juicy berries that signify summer and taste like heaven.

We have lots picked in store as well as having Pick Your Own berries as well if you want to head out into the field! There are TONS out there, we think you could almost stand still and fill a basket without moving! Here are some of our pick your own tips and rules for the field:

  • We welcome children of all ages, so there are no age restrictions
  • You can bring your own baskets or containers or purchase baskets here
  • We unfortunately cannot allow pets out into the field
  • Our wagon will take you out to and back from the field. The last wagon leaves 30 minutes prior to closing.
  • Best to wear sturdy footwear as you never know what the field conditions will be
  • The pick your own price for 2014 is $2.25 per pound

We can’t wait to see you out in the field! Its a wonderful summer experience!
