Pick Your Own Picking Tips

  • Best time to pick is early in the morning when the berries are still cool.  Pick Your Own is open from 7-11 AM daily.
  • Look under leaves for berries.  Sometimes the best are hidden!
  • Use both hands to pick – one to hold the stem and the second to hold the berry.
  • Keep the stem or hull on the berry.
  • Pick only all red berries.  Green or white tipped berries will not ripen after picked. 
  • Gently handle the berries.  Berries should not be squeezed.  Too much handling or dropping berries can cause bruising.  

Storing and Using Strawberries

  • Refrigerate picked berries and especially keep them out of the heat & sun.
  • Store in loosely covered containers.
  • Don’t wash the berries until they are ready to be used.
  • Take hulls & stems off of the berries after they have been washed to prevent them from soaking up the water.
  • Best to eat berries within 2-3 days.

Freezing Strawberries

  • Freezing is great for long time storing.
  • Berries can be frozen whole, chopped, sliced, mashed, or pureed.
