Strawberries in September
This event was created because no one believed us that we really had strawberries growing in our fields in September. We’re here to show off our Ever-Bearing Strawberry fields! This unique event takes you into the heart of our strawberry fields with a wagon ride, and the chance to pick-your-own strawberries in September. You will learn all about this beautiful berry and why it is still bearing fruit long after the typical berry season.
We know that picking your own strawberries is a family tradition and a well cherished experience for many families each year. We are excited to be able to offer Pick your own at this time of year!

Pick-Your-Own Strawberries FAQ’s
Can I bring my own containers?
No sorry. Currently, safe operating guidelines recommend only the use of new unused containers. You will also be prepaying for the full basket to avoid the extra “contact” with needing to weigh baskets after picking.
Can we bring our dog?
We love dogs and have several on the farm, but dogs are not allowed in the PYO. Please leave pets at home.
