Attention Important 2020 Spring Farm Information - Please Read!
As we have in recent years, we will offer pick-your-own and pre-picked strawberries; however, we need to make adjustments due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. Our goal is for you to have a safe enjoyable place to get your strawberries this year. Being outside, at a safe distance from others, is one of the best things to fight the virus.
For pick-your-own, we will adhere to NC Department of Agriculture guidelines for pick-your-own farms and COVID-19. U-pick offers you an opportunity to be the only person who has touched your fruit. We will also offer prepicked strawberries. If you want strawberries but don’t want to get out of the car, we will be happy to offer curbside service. We will adjust our safety procedures as needed as the situation continues to develop.
