Our luscious berries are just waiting for you to pick, so plan to come back often, but remember, the season lasts only three to four weeks. Hours of operation are always subject to change due to weather conditions and crop availability.
we are open.
To freeze strawberries without sugar (for jam and other uses), fill freezer containers with prepared sliced, or washed and dried berries to within ½” of top. Combine 4 cups cold water with 1 tbsp. of lemon or lime juice and pour over berries before freezing. Seal, label and date.
To freeze strawberries in sugar syrup, fill freezer containers with prepared berries to within ½” of top. Combine 4 cups cold water with 4 cups sugar; stir to dissolve. Pour over berries. Seal, label and date. Allow 1-1/2 cups prepared fruit and 1/3 to ½ cups syrup per 1 pint container.
For long term storage of individual berries individual quick freezing is recommended. This will minimize the “mushiness” associated with freezing the berries. Strawberries can be frozen and safely kept for up to 1 year. Place the berries on flat trays in a single layer, well spaced out, and put into the coldest part of the freezer (the colder the better). Choose firm, ripe berries; wash in ice water before hulling. Carefully drain well on several layers of paper towels first. When frozen, store in quart or pint containers, or place in heavy freezer bags, tightly sealed. If freezer bags are used, try to suck out as much air as possible to minimize freezer burn. Seal, label and date. These berries can be used individually, if desired for special desserts, on cereals or as ice cubes in fancy drinks.
