Getting Geared Up for Strawberry Season

We're getting all geared up for strawberry season!

The 11,500 strawberry plants that we planted in the fall are really growing!  That's nearly double the number of plants we had last year.  They should be ready to pick in April and May.  This year, we planted nearly all 'Sweet Charlie' strawberries, just like last year, which are famous for being super sweet!  We also planted several hundred 'Ruby June' and 'Chandler's to try and extend the picking season. Be on the look out for opening day of the patch.

WHAT: U-Pick Strawberries
WHERE: 14489 Bethel Church Lane, Smithfield, VA 23430
WHEN: 7am-7pm, 7 days a week, (starting in April - May), rain or shine
COST: $10/basket, on the honor system (we provide the containers for free)
