STRAWBERRY PICKING COUNTDOWN!!!
Despite the relentless Spring winds and the Sahara Dessert like sand storms blowing over the strawberries, they are valiantly holding their own. There may not be a green leaf left on the plant, but there are sure enough some really nice berries. Tomorrow,Thursday, is the first date of open picking. We will start at 9:00 AM. and pick until we want to quit! The containers will be provided: $3.00pt. (approx 1lb.) $6.00qt. and $20.00 for 7pt. box. A brief synopsis of the farm guidelines. One adult for each child under 8: Wear appropriate shoes and clothing: Do not eat the unwashed berries: Please be respectful of our fields and crops: Keep what you pick and only pick the completely ripe, all the way around, berries, red does not necessarily mean READY. We will not be able to give farm tours during picking season, but invite all to our family farm open house on June 4, ( more on that later).Picking will resume on Friday 9:00AM and then again on Sat. 9:00AM .Our market will be open for regular hours, Thurs. Friday, and Saturday, from noon until 4:00pm. We look forward to seeing everyone, contact us if there are any questions. From our farmstead to your table, thank you for all of your support!!!
