Containers and What to bring
We supply the buckets with bag liners. After picking and weighing, pull the bag out of the bucket and get those fresh berries home. We also have Ice water on hand and will have bottled water and soda for sale.
What to wear
We recommend that you dress comfortably, it can get quite warm in the afternoon. Close toed shoes are also recommended. The fields can be wet or moist in the mornings and there will be some weeds present. For this reason, flip flops or sandals are not recommended. Hats and sunscreen are also a good idea for those hot afternoons.
Groups are also welcome. We have had church groups, school groups and girls scout groups visit our farm. Group coupons or specials will be available. Coupons will also be available on our website from time to time. You are also welcome to bring your own drinks or even your own lunch to enjoy under one of the large shade trees.
Our price is the per pound price and will be posted on the U-Pick schedule. There is no minimum or maximum and variety availability will change due to ripening schedules.
