Sweet, delicious and abundant!  Strawberry picking starts at 7 am tomorrow morning (Monday, June 26)

The strawberries are ripe! Tomorrow morning we will open again and go back at strawberry picking. We are at the late peak part of strawberry picking season and there are lots of ripe berries but they are going to be smaller this week (as is normal) than they were the first week. It is time to fill the freezer or just enjoy them fresh.  The picking times are  Mondays starting at 7 AM;  Wednesdays starting at 2 PM ( no morning picking on Wednesdays) and Saturdays starting at 7 AM. This repeats every week through the season. We close the fields at 6 pm or when all the ripe berries are picked for that day.  We are open rain or shine. Bring your friends- it takes many hands to harvest the crop.

We prefer if you bring your own containers however we do have carriers here also.  The price is $1.50 per pound for u-pick. To speed up the checkout we are planning to stop weighing all the berries that are picked into 8 quart carriers and just put a flat $18 each on them as most of the carriers have near 12 lbs in them. This is assuming  that the individual quarts in the carrier will be filled rounded full but not that full that the berries spill off when removed. If you request we can still also weigh your berries and charge for actual weight. Daniel
