We are open today and this week 9-5 for PYO and pre-picked berries.  With what looks to be finally a week of good sunshine and warmer temperatures ahead of us berries will be ripening quickly and the picking will be excellent.. New sections will start to ripen to add to the mix this week ensuring good supply.  We will be opening up our market fields for picking like last year.  Today we will have picking in these areas starting 1:00 this afternoon.  In these areas picking will be structured and managed to achieve excellent picking conditions for those who wish to pick larger quantities.  Pre-picked berry supply at the stand is excellent for those who don't want to pick.  I have been saying that cold, late springs lead to great strawberry crops, and this year is no exception.  I think this is our best crop yet.  The coming week we will be open 9-5 daily for PYO and pre-picked berries.

We will be open 9-5 every day for the duration of the season.   I think the berries will easily run through July 4th or longer.  I will make regular posts as the season moves along so check back before making plans.  Welcome back and we look forward to seeing you all soon!  Prices are $7/quart for pre-picked berries.  PYO is priced at $3.79 for under 8lbs and $2.99 for over 8lbs.  We also have rhubarb available at $4/lbs. We supply all the picking supplies you need if you don't have your own containers.  Our strawberry stand is located 1 mile south on RT 72 from the RT 4 and RT 72 intersection in Harwinton.  For those who prefer GPS directions, click on the big red strawberry on either the directions page or the home page of our website.  It will lead you into a voice activated option to take you to our stand!  Please, leave your dogs home during PYO strawberry season.  The are welcome on the farm on leases during choose and cut Christmas tree season only.

Thank you, Farmer Jon
