Strawberry Picking Tips:

  • Call ahead or check the farm’s Facebook Page (linked in the title of each farm) to verify picking times, as they vary from farm to farm. This is a MUST!
  • Remember comfortable shoes (you will be walking in fields) and wear sunscreen.

  • Click ‘n Pick: To protect everyone’s social distance, we’re giving everybody the chance to sign up for a picking time–which will also help us to prevent large groups from gathering on our farm at once. Just click on “Click ‘n Pick” above, pick a time that works for your group, and show up at your selected time. Please note, your picking time is not limited.
  • 6 feet: Our strawberry rows are spaced 6 feet apart. The “Click ‘n Pick” system will help us ensure that you and your family will have a large section of a row to yourself.
  • Hand washing: We’ve always had hand washing stations available, but we built a bigger, better, system and we’re asking all customers to use it before entering the field. It’s stocked with soap. Use it as much as you’d like.
  • Masks: Our staff will be wearing masks. Masks are only a suggestion for customers.

And just a few additional reminders:

  • We provide picking boxes for your convenience.
