→ Handle strawberries gently, at all times, whether you are picking them, placing them in the container, or handling the filled containers.
→ Part the leaves with your hands to look for hidden berries ready for harvest.
→ Pick only the berries that are fully red, regardless of size.
→ It helps us and future customers if you pick rotten and damaged berries and leave them on the straw between the rows.
→ Pick berries with stem caps on.
→ Don't overfill your containers or try to pack the berries down.
→ Be careful that your feet and knees do not damage plants or fruit in or along the edge of the row.
→ It is important that you pick only on the row assigned to you.
→ Cool berries last longer, if you plan to pick more than 1 pail and it is hot out, ask about space in our refrigerators.
If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to ask one of our staff.
Please note that we're primarily a U-Pick operation. If you need someone to pick for you, we may be able to accommodate you. Please call ahead to check on availability.
