We are now open for pea and strawberry u-picking!

CROP UPDATE:

2017`s opening u-pick date is Memorial Day weekend (May 27th), but with a limit of five pounds per family, until probably June 1st, by which time we will be opening up for bulk u-picking as well.

This year our price for u-pick strawberries from May through November will remain @ $1.90 per pound for all purchases.

There will be a LOT of ripe berries available throughout the growing season, most years right up until Halloween! Plus, our fall strawberry crop is noted for being especially sweet and durable!

Also available for u-pick are our super sweet SugarSnap peas @ 2.50 per pound; perfect for eating fresh as a sweet and healthy snack, tossed whole (or cut) in salads, frozen for later use, or sauteed in stir-fry’s/omelets. 

And for your convenience, remember that our strawberries and peas can be purchased through October @‘The Boise Co-op’, & ‘Natural Grocers’.

And finally, here is a listing of all other u-pick orchards/farms in our valley. On it you’ll find u-pick blueberries, cherries, and so much more:

Upick Strawberrys from June through October

Strawberries are best when they are fresh, organic and RIPE! Haven’t you had enough of those giant and hard California berries with the green sometimes moldy skin and the hollow core? Our berries are RIPE, and best of all you get to choose each one you want to buy. Welcome to STRAWBERRY HEAVEN!!!

Strawberries are the perfect fruit for eating fresh, jamming, or freezing, and in the decade since our opening, we have taken pride in cultivating many of the newest varieties of strawberries available out the University of California, seeking to find the premier berry for our local Idaho climate; The result being that all five of our favorites, each with their own unique flavor, color, and texture, are available yearly for u-pick and special order, from June through October. We are Idaho’s largest Organic strawberry farm for a reason. We are dedicated to providing the local community with only the highest quality produce nature can provide.
