Strawberry U-PICK - OPEN

U-PICK is OPEN today from 8:30 am – 5:00 pm. Due to the heavy rain yesterday, our Stade’s Farm Express Train and Strawberry Swirl Ride will not operate today, but you can expect them to be open tomorrow.

The rows between our strawberry plants are straw-covered, so mud in the strawberry patch is minimal, but if you wear your boots that will help you will stay dry.

We have beautiful, red, ripe, delicious strawberries in our fields and we welcome you to come to the farm with your family and friends to pick strawberries!

Attention Families with Young Children: We are excited that you are visiting our farm with your children! We do, however, want to inform you that it is important that you bring your stroller or wagon if your child/children need a ride out to the strawberry fields. It is a bit of a walk to the picking area, and the wagons we have available are only suitable to transport large berry purchases. For the safety of your children, please do not allow them to ride in the Stade’s strawberry carrying wagons. Thank you for your cooperation!

We recommend that you check back here prior to driving to the farm to pick strawberries or visit our Facebook for updates throughout the strawberry season. If necessary, we will update the picking conditions as soon as we can.
