U-PICK ISCLOSED FOR THE SEASON

This year the price was $2.35 per pound

We provide containers for you!




Upick Information:

  • We welcome families to come and pick, however for the safety of the childern they MUST be supervised (We recommend one parent for every two childern)

  • It gets hot and buggy! We recommend you bring a waterbottle, sunscreen, and bug spray

  • Due to the width of the rows we do not allow any strollers into the fields

  • We love Fido as much as you, but due to food safety we do not allow pets into our fields

  • Help us keep the fields healthy by picking cleanly in our rows! As a fun tip the smaller/medium sized berries actually have more flavor than the larger ones




"Berry Best" Strawberry Tips
  • We sell prepicked berries in a quart or a flat (6 quarts)

  • Optimal shelf life of a strawberry is about 3 days 

  • Strawberries must be kept in the refrigerator for optimal shelf life 

  • Strawberries will mold or melt if left in a hot car or on a countertop

  • Rinse berries only before using, doing it too early can lessen shelf life

  • Keep hulls on until ready to use, they last longer!

  • Spread on cookie sheet and freeze 1 hour then move into freezer bags for individually frozen berries (best for 1 year)

  • To save yourself time, freeze the berrries the way you plan to use them (Whole, sliced, jam, mashed, etc...)

  • If you use frozen berries in recipe that were sweetened with sugar prior to freezing reduce the sugar amount by 1/2 cup for every pint(2 quarts)
