The strawberry season is finished. The pumpkins and squash have been planted and will be ready by mid-September. New this year… sunflowers! See you in the Fall.
Friday is the LAST DAY of the season. The rain has wiped out the last hope of extending the season. There are a very limited number of pre-picked quarts. The PYO field is closed… everything has been picked.
The Strawberry Stand will be open Friday @ 8am. PYO fields are closed for the season, so only pre-picked will be available. This is possibly the last day… we will let you know if there are berries available next week.
The strawberry crop has declined sharply, therefore, we will be only open Monday, Wednesday, Friday and possibly Saturday this week, 8am to 5pm (or until sold out.) The last days of the season may be June 17, 19, 21 (and 22?). If berries are available after that, we will let you know.
As of 11:15am, we hope to have enough berries to be open until at least 2:00, maybe a little longer.
Due to the storage of strawberries, on Saturday we will open at 8am and close around noon, or whenever the berries run out.
Strawberry farms around the region are experiencing a good first set of berries, and then the season quickly ends. That’s what we are also experiencing. Too much rain last Fall and this Spring has resulted in loss of plants, and weakened roots and plant systems. Therefore, the volume of good strawberries is greatly reduced in our area.
Due to the rain and an extremely high volume of berries picked this week, there will be a very limited amount of PYO strawberries available on Thursday morning (6/6). The Pick Your Own (PYO) patches need a day of rest and will be open again on Friday and Saturday. Our apologies to those who were planning a “big outing” to the strawberry farm on Thursday, hopefully you can reschedule for a different day.
Pre-picked berries will be available, while supplies last, @ $5 per quart box.
This week is the peak of the strawberry season. Now is the time to think strawberries, especially if you plan to make jam, freeze berries for smoothies, etc. Please pre-order large quantities of pre-picked berries ($5/qt). PYO fields are open 8am-8pm if you prefer to pick your own ($2/lb).
“How much longer will the season last?” is a popular question. This week and next week for sure, then it will depend on the weather. Hopefully, we will have berries through the third week in June… but we don’t know now.
During the rain (Thursday) we are offering curbside service for strawberry sales. $5 per quart. Open until 8pm.
The strawberry prices have dropped to regular-season prices of $5 per pre-picked quart and $2 per PYO pound. The season may be shorter than normal, but we hope for another 3+ weeks… don’t wait too long to get your strawberries.
