The Berry Patch is picked out for today, and is closing for season.
We thank all of our customers who have visited the farm during this very unusual season. In the midst of pandemic, challenging weather and growing conditions, and all of the uncertainty that goes with them, you have been anchors of support for our small business.
We now begin the process of preparing for next season: pruning raspberries, continuing to establish a new 3-acre strawberry field , and growing healthy plants that will go into winter in good condition.
We look forward to seeing you in June 2021 for strawberries.
Please continue to use this website for the most up to date information on picking. We are (STILL!) waiting for Frontier Communications to restore voice mail service and hope to have our voice mail system working again soon. You can also follow us on FaceBook. Thank you for your patience!
Regarding COVID-19, we are taking special care to provide a safe picking experience. First, we know that this virus is not transmitted by food and does not survive well in outdoor environments. We will accommodate physical distancing by ensuring at least 8 feet of distance between pickers in our fields. Our employees have been instructed to not come to work if they are not feeling well; they will wear masks when providing customer service and we encourage our customers to do the same. Handwashing stations are available in the field, and plexiglass sneeze guards are in our checkout shed.
We ask our customers to maintain at least 6' of physical distance as they wait to be assigned rows and as they checkout. We also ask that, at least for this season, that very young children not be brought to the farm; we also ask that pets not be brought to the farm, or that they be left in a well ventilated vehicle while their owners are picking.
Thank you for your interest in The Berry Patch!
