UP-PICK STRAWBERRIES IS CLOSED FOR THE SEASON
SEASONAL U-PICK CROPS AT FAIR FIELDS
Season: Mid June – Early July
U-Pick and Pre-picked Strawberries are done for 2021 season
The plants are loaded with berries, slowly turning red! Our berry patch is now in full swing and ready for u-picking and pre-picked orders.
For pre-picked orders email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 519-665-7982 (landline). We anticipate having a waiting list, so please confirm with us before coming.
Our price this year is $37.50 per 6 quart flat (this includes a 50 cent deposit on the flat box, refunded upon return).
U-pick Strawberries- $5.25/quart, if using our quart baskets, or, $4.00/lb, if you bring your own containers.
Seasonal U-Pick times:
Thursdays 4 pm – 8 pm
Fridays 10 am – 8 pm
Saturday 9 am – 6 pm
“We encourage you to bring your own appropriate picking containers, no bags please! If using your own containers, make sure we weigh them before starting to pick.
For those without containers, we can provide quart baskets and flat boxes (there is a 50 cent deposit on the flat boxes) to carry them in. We try to reuse quart baskets to reduce waste and Grey Bruce Public Health has assured us that by washing them and leaving them in the sun for several days (UV light) they will be covid-safe!”
Last year we had a huge surge in demand and sold out quickly for both u-pick and pre-picked. We have more than doubled the production this year, so hopefully, we will be able to meet demand a little better. Nevertheless, if coming from a distance for u-pick, please call or email ahead of time, or plan on showing up as soon as we open.
SEASONAL: MID-MAY TO JULY
U-pick Rhubarb – $3/lb.
We are open for u-pick and pre-picked by appointment. Call ahead to set up a time.
Please call ahead at (519) 665-7982
(landline so no texts please), or email email@example.com.
