No, but you can purchase pre-picked berries for farm pick up via our Online StoreWe update our inventory daily so what is on the site is what we have on-hand available for purchase. ​​​​​​​



Can I taste test the strawberries in the field before paying?
No. We understand that tasting freshly picked strawberries is a delightful part of the picking experience, but due to updated safety and sanitary regulations taste testing in the field is no longer permitted. 


Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!



Are child(ren) permitted in the strawberry field?
Unfortunately due to excessive "free-range parenting" in the past seasons our child(ren) policy has been updated. Please note the following:


  • Yes, well behaved child(ren) are permitted in the strawberry field during morning picks only. Evening picks are for adults only. 
  • We do require ONE adult for every TWO children in the field. 
  • It is your responsibility to ensure your child(ren) are staying in your assigned row, not taste testing strawberries, picking unripe berries and/or throwing berries... yes this really happens.  If they pick any unripe berries you are still required to pay for them. If they are caught throwing berries they will be asked to leave the field and return to your personal vehicle. 

We appreciate your cooperation in helping us keep the u-picks enjoyable for all guests. 



​​​​​​​Can I bring a wagon or stroller?

No. The rows are too narrow. 



How long will you have the PYO this year?
Our season is typically only 24 days long... I know it's too short. While every season is different due to the dramatic swings in Ohio Spring weather, we like to give the ballpark of our season starting around Mother's Day and ending after Memorial Day. 



Is there off street parking?
Yes, there is parking in grass. In the event of a lot of rain the U-pick may be reservation based or cancelled due to risk of cars getting stuck. 



Is there a public restroom?
No. There are 2 gas stations less than 2 miles away from the farm if nature calls. 


​​​​​​​

What if I physically cannot pick my own strawberries?
Please see if you can have someone come pick for you OR purchase pre-picked berries from our Online Store for farm pickup.  

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​


Are your strawberries organic?
While we are not a certified organic farm we do grow everything as if we were.  We work very hard to ensure our plants 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.
