Yes, folks, that's right... Season will open 30 September 2017

September 29, 2017

Yes, you read correctly... Picking season starts tomorrow, 30 September 2017.

For the first time in the 14 years that we have been open for strawberry picking, are we limiting the opening weekend picking hours. We will be open for picking from 7:30 am until 10 am on Saturday for picking, with Sunday being dependent on what Saturday afternoon looks like.

Yes, you read right, only two and a half hours of picking available on Saturday morning.

Every year we experience more and more people descending on the farm for our opening weekend, as well as the following few weekends. Yes, we appreciate this, but it does tend to mean that we are picked out earlier and earlier each year. By limiting our picking times this first weekend, we are attempting to ensure there will be strawberries to pick on Sunday. As it stands, with the limited times for Saturday, we expect that we should be open on Sunday for picking, yet this is not guaranteed. We will only be able to post that on Saturday afternoon.  

The weatherman seems to think that we will be having a nice, partly cloudy weekend, which is great for picking. But don't forget the sunscreen.

We recommend getting here at 7:30 tomorrow morning, for the pick of our strawberries. We are not just a pick-your-own, we are a pick and eat in the fields...

See you in the fields bright and early.
