We grow a variety of strawberry that is known for its vibrant red color and sweet flavor. What sets our strawberries apart is their sweetness and freshness. The berries that you get at our stands are picked at the peak of ripeness, making them more delicious than berries you get in stores. And the best way to get the freshest berries is to visit the farm and pick them!”
