We are closed for the winter (2019-2020). U-pick will open again in late May, 2020. And a special thank you to our customers who value their health, and self-harvest our vegetables and strawberries. Another key to health is to not eat any refined sugar.

 

Baby Axle in Strawberries

 

Welcome to Richardson Family Farm

Our strawberry season runs from Memorial Day to Halloween (5 months straight), and our berries are plentiful. As always, we look forward to seeing you and your family/friends out for another great year of strawberries!
(We provide free flat boxes for berry storage/management, and hands-on advice for u-picking strawberries. Kids welcome! Cash/checks only please.)

Our four different plant varieties are packed with ripening berries all season long (late May, all the way through til Halloween!), so it won’t take you long to pick multiple pounds. If you are picking a plethora for jamming, bring your friends and family to make it quick and fun!

For a full listing of our other crops (and when they are ripe), see below.

 

Further details: Our business numbers, in order of which to call are: (208)-365-4262, (208)-869-2619, and (208)-995-1720. We are open daily from dawn til dark, but are closed on Sundays. (Please call ahead if you need to pick on Sunday.)

 

And for your convenience, remember that our produce can be purchased through October, @‘The Boise Co-op’.

This year our price for u-pick strawberries from May to November will remain @ $2.50 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!

Our super sweet Sugar Snap peas @ 3.00 per pound will be available next May 2020; 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.  Our peas are the  sweetest of all vegetables. 

If you are poor and want to buy our certified fruits and vegetables, we can give you a weeding assignment or other work so you can earn your food.  We are members of WWOOF  (Willing Workers On Organic Farms)  http://www.wwoof.org.

 

When you see this bridge, you know you’re getting close to the delicious strawberries.

  1. Is there anyway to be notified when the next crop is ready for upick?

    • My best guess at this point, Mid July; but The weather this year has made timings unpredictable. I will post up on our site further details as they become available, so check the main ‘crop update’ page in late June/early July for specifics.

  2. Do you still have u-pick organic strawberries available? And do you have u-pick organic apples for sale? What hours are you open?

    Thanks!

  3. Hi,
    We’d love to talk to you about wholesale quantities. Can you email me, info@idahosbounty.coop? We are in the area twice a week, picking up product, and then delivering the next day in the Wood and Treasure Valleys, including to both Boise Coops.

    Thankl
