Frequently Asked QuESTIONS


What is your COVID-19 plan?

We have social distancing protocols in place that include social distancing and hand washing. Please follow instructions upon arrival to the patch. We ask for your patience as we navigate new protocols with our new staff.


How much are the berries? 

U-pick berries are $2.50 per pound. Pick as many as you like.


Are the berries organic? 

Our berries are not organic because we are not an organic farm. We use some herbicides along fencelines and some commercial fertilizers. We make every effort to NOT use chemicals on the strawberries. This year, we have only used an herbicide in the walkways of the patch. This is applied with a roller applicator that does not come into contact with the plants or the berries. The berries themselves have not been sprayed with anything. We do not plan to spray. We try to be transparent about our production methods. If you have specific questions, ask us.


What should we bring? 

This is the great outdoors. There is sunshine and dirt. Bring sunscreen, a cool drink, and sensible shoes for uneven ground. Bring the family and the camera. We have buskets for the berries. Feel free to bring back your buskets from previous years, but do not bring other containers. We will not be able to pre-weigh your containers.


What other products do you have? 

We have 100% Grass-fed Beef, Pastured Pork, and honey from the bees on the farm. The pork prices and beef prices are on the website. The honey is $12 per pound jar.


What kinds of payment do you take? 

We accept cash, good checks, and major credit cards. If you do not want change handed back because of coronavirus concerns, please plan for exact cash or a check. Cards still have to be swiped.



Our address is 701 Ollie Lane, Hillsborough. Get map directions here.

Know Before You Go

We want to make sure you have a great visit to our farm. Please keep a few things in mind:

  1. There is no shade in the strawberry patch. That's how we get great berries. Think about picking early and late in the day. You will keep cooler and the berries will keep better.
  2. If you plan to pick a lot of Double R berries, bring a drink to keep hydrated.
  3. Remember to dress appropriately. Hats and sunscreen are always in fashion.
  4. Pick only the RED berries. The orange ones or the red ones with green tips are not quite ripe yet. Once picked, the berries will get redder, but not any sweeter.
  5. Strawberry picking is a great family project. Please remember to keep children with you while you pick. There are many cars coming and going. Some people don't think to watch for small children.
  6. If our are bringing the family, bring the camera too. Capture those great family moments on film.
  7. While you are welcome to bring your human family members, please leave your pets at home. Our own critters and other guests may not be as pet-friendly as we are.
  8. Even though we plan to open at 8 a.m. Monday through Saturday, we may close early if the field is picked out for the day. Don't forget to call ahead if you plan to come late in the day.
  9. We accept Cash, Good Checks, and Major Credit Cards.
  10. If you share your experience in social media, please tag us.
  11. Have Fun!
