Hello Strawberry Picking Guru’s!
Our Asparagus Countdown to fresh picked tender stalks is well under way, we just need to wait till around mid-May. Fresh Lettuce will also be available that is grown in our high tunnel and maybe some farm fresh 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, grow and thrive. This time of the year is very special for a farmer as planting season starts the whole process of the growing season. It’s like magic for us at the Farm and we can’t wait!
Have you thought about Strawberries lately? 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 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, only 20 minutes from Green Bay, a short distant from the Fox Valley, 30 minutes for Strawberry Picking Appleton area, 18 miles from Clintonville, and a very short drive from Hortonville, Suamico, and Neenah areas.
We would love to invite your family to the Farm this year to enjoy one of our picking adventures or just stop out to pick up some Fresh Picked Produce from the Farm Store to take home to your dinner table for friends and family.
