Frequently Asked Questions
Do you require reservations?
No, we do not take reservations. Berry picking is available on a first-come-first-serve basis, as we have berries available.
Do I need to bring a bucket to pick in?
Nope, we've got you covered with reusable Cherry Place Farm buckets you get to take with you.
Why do your hours and days open change week-to-week?
It is extremely difficult to anticipate how quickly the berries will ripen. Weather plays a huge part in this, as does how busy we are day-to-day. We would rather have wacky hours and plenty of berries, than a set schedule and slim pickings in order to ensure there are enough berries to provide you a pleasant picking experience. The best way to monitor our hours is Facebook or Instagram... we always always recommend you check social media before you head our way!
Do you sell pre-picked berries?
Monday-Wednesday are the best days to get pre-picked strawberries. These days are devoted to picking and cleaning up the fields. You can find the berries on our roadside stand at 1950 Oakdale Road. This stand runs on the honor system, meaning you serve yourself and leave cash in the dropbox! No card payments available on these days.
On Thursday-Sunday we aim to keep pre-picked available, however our priority is you-pick.
Do you take cash or card?
Monday-Wednesday: The roadside stand operates on the honor system and only accepts cash payment. Please bring exact cash, no change available.
Friday-Sunday: We accept both cash and card payments. There is a 3% surcharge added to all credit card transactions to cover service fees.
How do I pick strawberries?
The key is finding a fully ripe berry. Unlike bananas that will further ripen once picked, strawberries will not ripen any more once picked from the vine. Gently comb through the plant to find ripe berries hiding under the leaves. Then gently pull on the berry to simply snap the vine.
Is there anything else to do at the farm?
Yes, when you come to pick strawberries you may also visit with our farm animals (chickens, goats, sheep, donkey, and cows (if they feel like visiting and come to the fence). You are welcome to bring any old or stale bread, crackers, cereal, fruits, or veggies to feed the critters.
Do you have anything else for sale?
Yes. We have t-shirts, hats, and canned goods (salsa, jam, and syrup, made from our tomatoes and strawberries).
