PICKING CONDITIONS UPDATE!! (June 21, 2016) – We began our 2016 strawberry season on Monday, June 13. The Jewel and Allstar varieties are filling in nicely now; however, the Annapolis variety is just about done. We will be picking on all three varieties this evening, but by Thursday we’ll move to just Allstar and Jewel. We continue to be open Mondays, Thursdays & Saturdays (8 am – 2pm) and Tuesday evenings from 3-7 pm. On all days of picking the best picking will always be in the first couple of hours. We plan to be open the entire scheduled time; however, picking will take more time and patience the later we get in the picking day. Also, due to lower number of berries in the field (from the May 15 freeze we experienced), we are focusing on our you pick customers… and are NO LONGER taking orders for prepicked quarts. If you placed an order already, we will be filing those…just not taking any new ones. Finally, we hope to be picking through Tuesday, June 28 for sure, possibly into late next week… we will see how the fields look and the amount of berries coming out. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to give us a call! (507-252-1309)
