For those looking to pick strawberries without a tour....

We offer strawberry picking just behind our Market Stand at $5/lb. Ask us for a green basket to pick your own strawberries. As long as we have enough strawberries growing, you can pick your own!*

Note: This is different from our Strawberry Tours, as the amount of strawberries growing behind the Market is limited we do not allow picking and eating. We want everyone to enjoy the experience of picking strawberries and therefore strawberries only go in your baskets not in your bellies!

*Due to the limited strawberry plants in this area, we may not always have strawberries available for picking here. You can always call us ahead of time to see if we have enough berries for picking on a day that you'd like to come out. To ensure that you get to pick strawberries, join us on a strawberry tour.

These strawberries are located behind our market stand out in the field. They are hydroponically grown in these tubes. The tubes are filled with coconut husk. We run drip irrigation pipes to water these strawberries. Call ahead to make sure we have enough berries for picking here as they get picked through very quickly.
