Tips for a FUN Visit to the U-Pick Fields

How to Pick the Best Berries

  • You want to choose plump, firm, red strawberries
  • Strawberries stop ripening at the moment they picked - so only pick ripe berries
  • If the tip of a strawberry is red - it is ready to eat
  • Berries that appear slightly green or orange in color are not ripe
  • Don't judge a fruit by it's size - large & small berries can both be sweet and delicious

Dress for Picking

Remember to dress for the weather and in clothing that you won't mind getting a little dirty or even stained by a little berry juice! You may want to wear sunscreen.
We line the rows with straw to minimize getting muddy in wet conditions but we recommend you wear an older pair of shoes or boots. You may want to wear long pants and bug repellent as well.
