Before you leave to go to the farm:

·        Pick before noon.

·        Pick Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday….historically these are our slowest days.

·        Bring your own containers!  Recycled salad green plastic containers are best.  We have paper boxes, but will charge for them. 

·        If you use your own containers, remember that heaping strawberries more than 5 inches deep will bruise the lower berries. Plastic dishpans, metal oven pans with 3 inch tall sides and large pots make good containers. 

·        We prefer cash.  Credit and Debit cards are prohibitively expensive for our short season; we do not have the capability to accept either. 

·        Bring something to drink and a few snacks; you'd be surprised how you can work up a thirst and appetite!    We do have water in our taps if you forget!

·        And don't forget hats and sunscreen for the sun.   We had customers passing out in the field in 2006 and 2 of our workers had sunstroke.  It can be VERY hot!
