Pick Your Own Strawberry Rules & Pricing

Our strawberry fields will be open daily with great strawberry picking beginning daily at 9 am, (except Sunday 10 am) and will remain open until the ripe strawberries are sold out for the day, or 4 pm.  As always come early for best picking.

1.  Please always pick in designated rows as instructed by our staff.

2.  Please walk down each row before moving the next row.  Do not Cross across rows, it damages our plants and berries. 

3.  Strawberries are found under the leaves and are hard to see just walking along.  Get down and move aside the leaves for the ripe berries. We understand that some people want only large berries, but that is not always possible.  Most plants have as few as 1 large berry per plant.  Strawberries come in various sizes large, medium and small.  Small berries taste as wonderful as large berries.
