PICK YOUR OWN STRAWBERRIES

FROM LATE JUNE UNTIL OCTOBER

We welcome you to experience pick your own (PYO) strawberries like never before with our vertical, hydroponic growing system. This uniquely designed way of growing allows you to pick standing up and not on the ground; crawling on your hands and knees! Hand-select what you bring home while making memories and enjoying a one-of-a-kind AG-venture.

 

Our strawberries are ever-bearing, which means that they will continue to produce berries from June until early October.

There are two ways to pick your own (PYO) strawberries at our farm:

  • Appointment PYO Experiences: Visit our reservation page to book an appointment.

  • Open PYO Experiences: Saturdays ONLY from 9am - until we sell out for the day, which can be within a couple hours and sooner during the start of the season!

🍓 Appointment PYO Experiences 

Reservations are offered during the week starting in June and will run until late August only. Visit our reservation page to book your spot. 

🍓 Open PYO Experiences - Saturdays Only
Saturday: 9am until we're picked out for the day. Because our vertical growing system makes picking fast and easy, we recommend arriving by 9am for strawberry picking. Our farmstand will still be open throughout the day. Open PYO picking is not available during other days.


🍓 Price & Payment Methods

We charge $5.00 per pound container during Saturday picks. Cash is always preferred but we also accept local checks, and Visa, Mastercard, & Discover.
 

🍓 Driving Directions

We are located 8 miles east of Clinton off of Route 10. It is hit and miss when using our address with a GPS device, Mapquest, or Google Maps when locating our farm. You might end up VERY LOST! We recommend using the driving directions on our Driving Directions page or these coordinates when using a GPS device: 40.113557, -88.827004.

 

🍓 Cancellations

Our strawberries are planted in two greenhouse structures, which means you can pick rain or shine. However, we reserve the right to cancel picking due to severe weather or available supply. Cancellations for open PYO will be announced on our Facebook event page. Private PYO experiences will be notified prior to scheduled appointment.
