8:30 am – 5:00 pm
(slim pickings)
Sadly, we will have slim pickings for strawberries throughout the Fourth of July weekend. The remaining berries are much smaller now and will require extra patience to fill your bucket. You are welcome to enjoy part of your holiday weekend by visiting the farm, but we want to be upfront with you, so you are not disappointed. It is going to hot, we have no shade, and there are not many berries to pick. If you are a seasoned picker, you will have success. If you are coming out for the experience and to take some lovely photos (and you love hot weather), you will have a good time! It’s a beautiful place to spend time with your family.
If you are visiting, you may need to lower your expectations before you arrive at the farm and reduce the number of buckets you expect to fill. There is a $5 minimum purchase for each person who enters to pick, and no refunds will be issued for unfilled buckets. 
Raspberry U-PICK will NOT be available on Friday, July 3rd. (the raspberries need time to ripen) but we will have an ample supply for Saturday, July 4th. 
We apologize for the inconvenience. Due to large crowds of people who visited the farm this year, our strawberry crop sold out earlier than usual. We will have more picking (vegetables and fruit) throughout the rest of our growing season. Keep in touch through Facebook or visit our website @ stadesfarmandmarket.com. We will have raspberries available for the next 2-3 weeks on a first-come, first-served basis. If raspberries are not available on any given day, we will update that information as soon as we can.
For those of you who love our strawberry donuts and strawberry slushies, the end is near. Come and get them while you can. Enter through the yellow and white striped tent 🙂


To be prepared for the best experience possible, please read Stade’s strawberry picking guidelines 2020, for both the farm and our guests, as we maneuver through the changes that Covid-19 has brought forth.

No refunds are issued for unfilled baskets.
