PICK YOUR OWN STRAWBERRIES
FROM 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.
Be the first to know when strawberries are available when subscribing to our email newsletter.
There are two ways to pick your own (PYO) strawberries at our farm:
🍓Appointment PYO Experiences: NEW in 2023 - We are only making available 2-3 weeks of appointments at a time. We recommend becoming a subscriber to our e-news for keeping in the know. Appointments are only offered during the week. We DO NOT take appointments on the weekends. Visit our reservation page to book an appointment.
🍓Open PYO Experiences: This means we are open for anyone to pick on Saturdays ONLY from 10am - until we sell out for the day, which can be within a couple hours or sooner during the start of the season! Because our vertical growing system makes picking fast and easy, we recommend arriving by 10am SHARP for strawberry picking. Our farm market and food concessions will still be open throughout the day. Open PYO picking is not available during other days. We are NOT open on Sundays from June until the end of August.
🍓 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.
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 page. Private PYO experiences will be notified prior to scheduled appointment.
