Fall 2011 U-pick Strawberry & Red Raspberry

Labor Day is fast approaching and you know what that means on our farm…it’s U-pick Strawberry Time!!  If you are new to our strawberry field, it is quite a sight to see.

We grow our strawberries in “stackers” so that they grow above ground in towers.  Because of this there is no bending or kneeling required in picking the berries, so it is a very pleasant and clean picking experience!  The strawberry field is also covered in a black greenhouse floor covering, so it is easy for strollers or wheelchairs to ride over.

We will be open rain or shine, the only reason we would close would be if there are severe storms.  If the weather is questionnable – please call us first.  The field will be open on Tuesdays and Saturdays, 10a-2p.  Pricing will be the same as last year, $2.75 per pound.  Please follow the signs from the James Street enterance to the parking area.

NEW this year is a raspberry u-pick.  The raspberry field will be open during the same time as the strawberry u-pick, Tuesdays and Saturdays 10a-2p.  Price will be $3.50 per pound, and each pint of raspberries is 1/2 pound ($1.75 per pint).

Parking will be at the same location as our strawberry u-pick, so just follow the signs from our James Street enterance to the parking area.  Thank you!
