UPICK PROTOCOLS: 

No outside containers

(not even your previously purchased Krause containers)

Every guest small to large, entering fields must purchase a container.

 

Guests purchase a basket with the price based on a full basket of berries.

Our guests will then proceed to stop #2 to receive a row assignment and then once the guests have finished picking they are then able to return to their vehicle.

 

We please ask that guests do not eat the berries so to remove a dangerous touchpoint of a guest putting a berry in their mouth and then touching the plants again.

Thank you for following the direction of our staff.   

No outside food or beverages

No smoking or vaping

No pets/animals

Helpful Hints & Freezing Tips for Berries

Only wash your berries when you are ready to use them.  Sort them quickly, removing any leaves or stems.  Process or freeze your berries the same day you recieve them for maximum flavour & quality.  Berries are perishable and lose their quality quickly.  Never soak your berrries in water.  For best results, rinse lightly and drain in a colander.  Let dry on paper towel or absorbent tea towels.
 
Spread berries on a cookie sheet after they have been cleaned and allowed to dry.  Place sheets in freezer.  When the berries are frozen, place them in a plastic freezer back or rigid plastic container.  
Mark with a date, and pop back in the freezer.

Picking Advice

1.  Picking strawberries with or without hulls depends on what you plan to do with the berries.  if you're not going to be able to process them for while, or you want them for fresh eating, leave the hulls on.  They will stay fresher longer.  If you're just taking them directly home to make jam or freeze them, pick the hulls off as you pick them.  It will save you time later.

2.  As soon as you get home, put your berries in the refrigerator.  You can't leave them in the garage overnight.  Our berries are more perishable than those imported, because they are picked fresh and not green.  There also aren't any added preservatives for freshness added.  The sooner you process them, the better the flavour.

3.  It's best to pick in the morning, when there are lots of berries and it's cooler.  You can take them home and process them in the afternoon.
