strawberries

Greetings from a berry busy farm!

The Lord is blessing (“Indeed, the LORD will give what is good,And our land will yield its produce.” Psalms 85:12) and the strawberry patch is changing quickly! Most of the strawberry plants are loaded heavy with berries and there is an increasing number ripening now!

We already have a lot of people on the waiting list for u-pick strawberries and if you would like to be added to the list please call my grandma, Imogene (aka G-Jean), at (620) 336-3281 to schedule your appointment for harvesting.

As we are able we will also have some pre-harvested strawberries available. Please call Imogene to reserve both the pre-harvested and u-pick strawberries. If you choose for us to harvest them for you the strawberries are $4.25 per quart and u-pick are $3.00 per quart.

There are just a few quarts left in the cooler which we harvested Monday and this week’s u-pick openings are filling up fast from our current waiting list. We are scheduling the following couple of weeks some as well if you won’t be able to make it out this week. When you call to reserve your berries please have in mind approximately how many you would like so we can reserve them for you.

Remember we are also harvesting other produce. Check out our website for other produce options. We can have a garden share ready for you to pick up with your berries if you let us know ahead of time. Harvest days for other produce are Tuesday and Friday and we need to know your order by 11 p.m. the evening before harvest.

May you have a blessed week!
