Of course we want you to make memories with your loved ones. Just remember it is your responsiblity to teach them how to correctly pick strawberries. Meaning they are NOT to rip the plants out of the ground or pick ANY green berries. If they pick any green berries you are still required to pay for them.
Are your strawberries organic?
While we are not a certified organic farm due to surrounding fields being sprayed with chemicals we do grow everything as if we were. We feed our crops fish, seaweed, minerals, humic acid and molasses while using garlic and neem oil to prevent disease and pest infestation when/if any arise. We work very hard to ensure our plants and trees are happy and healthy as they will yield sweeter and more delicious fruits. We also utilize cover crops to feed the bees and to increase pollination as well as to put nutrients back into the soil.
