U-Pick Strawberries in Sept & Oct?

strawberry-potYes, that’s right, at Bowerman Blueberries in Holland, Michigan, you can pick your own strawberries on Mondays and Fridays, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., weather permitting.

How is this possible?  Bowerman Blueberries has grown more than 15,000 strawberry plants in an above ground, hydroponic feeding system that allows us to have fresh strawberries throughout the summer and on into September and October.  During these last two months, we open two days a week for you to pick your own!

Come pick your own fresh, sweet, juicy red strawberries right from the plant–and since our berries do grow on trees (well, really, polystyrene towers), you don’t even have to bend over!
