Welcome to The Berry Patch
There’s nothing quite like a fresh strawberry, straight from the patch! Bring the family to the field and Pick-Your-Own, or grab a basket of Pre-picked strawberries from our roadside stand. Watch closely though….the season is SHORT!
In 2008, we decided that we were ready for a new challenge. So, we planted a few acres of strawberries – the traditional June-bearing type. We already grew dozens of other crops. “What’s one more?” we thought. Little did we know how steep the learning curve would be! What an adventure it has been!
Picking usually begins around the third week of June – about the time that school is finishing up for the year! Depending on the weather, we’ll have only 4 to 5 weeks of good picking.
Because the season always flies by so quickly, we recommend eating strawberries AT LEAST once a day for that entire month!!
