2021 Pick Your Own Strawberry Information
Pick your own strawberries will be open daily at 8AM while in season. Picking conditions can change based on the weather and picking activity. Please check our website or call for picking conditions before visiting.
Strawberry Picking Pricing:
All strawberry pickers over the age of 5 will be required to purchase a $7 field pass to enter the strawberry field.
- Each field pass entitles the holder a single quart container (about 1.75 lbs) of pick your own strawberries as well as entrance to the field. After purchasing your field pass, additional individual pick your own quarts will be priced at $5 per quart.
- To guarantee admission into the fields on a given day, you must purchase passes online! Walk in sales will be permitted only if the field capacity and crop conditions allow.
Online passes for the following day will be released each afternoon around 5PM once we have a chance to check the field conditions for the next day.
This will help us to better manage the number of people in the field on any given day.
Verrill Farm pre-picked berries will be sold at the farm stand for $7.99 per quart when available.
The pick your own strawberry fields are open daily beginning at 8AM. We will post the hours for the next day each day at 5PM. Picking conditions can change based on the weather and picking activity. Please check our website or call for picking conditions before visiting.
Because we are limiting the number of available field passes each day, all sales are non refundable unless Verrill Farm makes the decision to close the strawberry fields early. In that case, unredeemed passes for that day will be refunded.
Things to know before Arriving:
- Masks are not required for strawberry picking this year. However keep in mind that masks are still required INSIDE the store, so if you plan on stopping in after picking or using the restroom, don’t forget your mask.
- Handwashing stations will be available to all pickers prior to entering the strawberry field.
- Containers will be provided to you at check in. Per state guidelines, outside containers will not be permitted.
- Check in/Check out will take place outdoors at our open-air strawberry wagon. This will help to prevent crowds from congregating inside the farm stand.
Due to food safety regulations, we kindly ask that all pets are left at home.
