Pick strawberries like a pro

  • Bend down and look through the plants, moving the leaves away to search for the best berries.
  • Select a berry that is bright red and does not have a white shoulder.
  • Inspect the berry to make sure it is healthy with no marks.
  • Break the strawberry off just above calyx by holding the stalk between your thumb and index finger and use a snapping motion to break off the strawberry stalk.
  • Fill your container with sweet red strawberries and then exit the field. Enjoy!

Please Note

  • Every person entering the fields must have their own container, which can be purchased at the Farm Stall.
  • For hygiene reasons, no eating is allowed in the fields. Once your container is full and you have exited the field, the eating can begin.
  • Picking is available from Monday to Saturday.
  • Strawberry picking is weather dependent.
