The Strawberry U-pick Fields are now Open!  2.99 per pound.

You can bring your own containers or one will be provided for you at a small additional charge.

 

 Always call before you go to the farm - strawberries are affected by weather (both rain and cooler temperature) more than most crops. Call the U-pick hot line @ 239-292-6154

 

Strawberry Picking Guide:

 

  • Select plump, firm, fully red berries. The small berries are often most flavorful.
  • Strawberries measurements: 1 quart = 2 pints = 4 cups and is about the same as 1 liter and weighs 1.25 lbs (or 600- 625 g). 1 quart is normally enough for 4 servings
  • One cup of strawberries contains only 43 calories.
  • Unripe berries will not ripen once picked.  
  •  A quart equals 1 and 1/2 pounds of fresh berries.
  • Strawberries were originally called strewberries because the fruit was “strewn” amongst the leaves of the plant.
  • The strawberry plant adapts to wide variety of soil conditions, but does not tolerate drought well, and the berries quickly rot if the weather is rainy. For this reason, the plants are usually grown on raised beds through plastic mulch!
  • Cultivation of strawberries began in Europe in the 1300’s, but the berry only became very popular in the early 1900’s in California.
  • You can easily freeze berries that you can not use right away - just wash, cut the hulls off and pop them into a ziplock bag, removing as much air as possible. Those vacuum food sealers REALLY do a good job of this! The berries will keep for many months frozen without air.

Will be OPEN New Years Day

 

Get your fresh Blackeye Peas and Greens for your News Years Feast!

 

A Southern tradition for a year of luck and prosperity Served with greens the peas represent coins and the greens represent paper money.

Cornbread, often served with black-eyed peas and greens, represents gold.

 

For the best chance of luck every day in the year ahead:

 

 

  • one must eat at least 365 black-eyed peas on New Year's Day.
  • Black-eyed peas eaten with stewed tomatoes represent wealth and health

 

Whether you choose to follow the Southern New Year's tradition or not, black-eyed peas are a good source of nutrition. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, black-eyed peas are low in fat, contain no cholesterol, and are low in sodium. They are high in potassium, iron, and fiber and a one-half cup serving of cooked black-eyed peas counts as one ounce of lean meat from the Meat, Poultry, Fish, Dry Beans, Eggs and Nuts Group of the Food Guide Pyramid.
