What's New at the Strawberry Patch?
We have changed a few things in our strawberry patch this year. We needed to rotate the field, so the strawberry patch is now located above the peach trees. If you have ever been here before you know that is quite a hike. Good news is that we have a FREE hay ride that will run every 15 min so you do not have to walk.
If you plan to visit during the week, the ride may not be going (those are usually slower days) but we will give you a lift on our Gator.
Strawberry Patch FAQ
1-Do we need to bring our own containers?
No, we provide the gallon buckets for you to pick in and then we put them in a flat container for you to take home.
2-What do we need to wear?
Comfortable clothing that you do not mind getting dirty. It is often muddy, so wear water boots, or old shoes.
3-How do you pick strawberries?
The redder the better! If it is green leave it, strawberries do not ripen after they are picked.
4-Do you accept credit/debit cards?

We try to grow everything that we sell.
It is impossible to grow everything so when I have to purchase produce
I go to other growers directly so I know they have safe and good quality produce. We make our own ice cream and fudge. We have the freedom to be creative with our flavors and flexibility to do special orders. We are family owned and operated which also gives us freedom in operations. We believe in the best customer service possible and want every customer to leave with a pleasant experience, a full tummy, and a little more knowledge about agriculture.
An American Family Farm
We are a working farm and are at the mercy of mother nature so when you visit please keep that in mind. When you visit we want you to see and experience what we did as children on our farm, so you can expect some hay bale climbing and tire swing fun. We like to educate children about agriculture and how important it is form them to know where their food comes from and how agriculture can effect their lives.
