At Berry Hill Farm they pride themselves on growing top quality strawberries, as well as other delicious produce, for you to go and select and pick.
“Here at the Berry Hill Farm we have strawberries, raspberries, and rhubarb during the summer season. Tentative schedule for strawberries is from approximately middle of June to the beginning of July. Raspberries are typically in season from early July to the middle of July. Rhubarb is ready to be picked around mid-May, but we will also pick through the strawberry season. Please remember that these dates are approximate.
Berry Hill fields are open during the spring and summer seasons so you can pick your own fresh strawberries. Middle of June typically marks the beginning of berry season but weather dictates actual dates.
Here’s an idea, instead of picking up your berries at the grocery store or farmer’s market, how about picking them from the patch yourself or with your family?
