Hello Friends of the Farm!
Our Fresh Tender Asparagus Countdown is well under way, only 11 weeks left. We will have yummy Asparagus available the beginning of May at the Farm Store. Fresh Lettuce will also be available that is grown in our high tunnel and maybe some Spinach. We all just need to be a bit patient yet. Soon the Farm will come alive, the frost will be out, frogs and birds will be back and planting season will arrive. All kinds of seeds and plants waiting to sprout and grow, the magical kingdom of our Farm will start to thrive again. We just can’t wait!
Are you Thinking Strawberries yet? We hope so, as it will be here before you know it. Strawberry picking at the Farm usually starts about mid-June and only last 2 to 3 weeks. Fresh Peas (edible pods and garden shucking types) will also be available for picking around the Strawberry season, along with pre picked peas. We offer both pre picked and pick your own strawberries during our season. Strawberries are sold by the pail or box you pick. We Pick Strawberries are sold by the Quart, Pail or Box. The fields for the u pick strawberries have easy access from your vehicle, you park right next to the field you are picking in, can’t get any easier than that. The Strawberry Farm is located a short distant from the Fox Valley, only 20 minutes from Green Bay, 25 minutes for Strawberry Picking Appleton area, 18 miles from Clintonville, and a very short drive from Neenah, Hortonville and Suamico areas.
We would like to invite you and your family to the Farm this year to enjoy one of our picking adventures or just stop in to pick up some Fresh Picked Produce from the Farm Store to take home to your dinner table for friends and family.
