A few things to keep in mind for picking the farm...

  • Dress appropriately - Strawberrys are juicy and might stain your clothing.

  • Wear appropriate footwear - the fields can be muddy at times... this is not a good place to wear your flipflops... boots are best!

  • For the best flavor, pick only RED Strawberries.  Do not pick any Stawberries with green and do not pick the flowers.  You need to pay for everything you pick.

  • Refrain from eating Strawberries in the fields as it is probably best if you wash your fruit before eating it.

  • Do not cross over rows to keep from damaging the Strawberry plants.

  • Stay hydrated - You may bring your own water or purchase bottles in the market

  • Children must be supervised at all times - This is a working farm with large machinery 

  • No Pets -this farm experience is not ideal for Fido... and Fido's fertilizer is not ideal for our food

  • Absolutely NO SMOKING - Tobacco can give fruits and vegetables the disease Tobacco Mosaic Virus.  If you chew or are a smoker of tobacco, commercial cig's or organic, do not smoke around the Strawberries and do not touch them without washing your hands thoroughly with soap and water.

  • No Strollers or Wagons in the Strawberry Fields
