General Berry Picking Rules

Just some common sense

We DO NOT use synthetic pesticides or herbicides on our farm - period. We are not certified organic but choose to farm using organic practices and do our very best to be good stewards of the land. We are primarily a pick-your-own operation when it comes to our berries - strawberries, blackberries and red raspberries.  

You can always find up-to-date information on the location of the field, price, picking conditions, etc. on the update/home page of this website. Sign up on our mailing list to recieve Berry Notices - directly to your right you will see our mailing list sign up.



Questions about weather closings should be directed to the home page of this website, Facebook or the Farm answering machine: 419-261-0908. If in doubt it is always best to check first. Sometimes it is raining here, and not where you live, and vice versa. Please check so as not to be disappointed if you are driving a distance.


The field is located right at the corner of St Rt 235 & US 6 -  look for the signs. 


Prices have not yet been set for 2014 season

Payment methods include cash, check and credit card.

 We may have a VERY LIMITED amount of pre-picked berries. PLEASE call first to place an order - if we have pickers avaiable we will be happy to pick for you. 

Our Picking Rules - 

Children are always welcome at the field. We ask that you teach them how to pick properly. If you plan on picking for a while it may be a good idea to bring something for a younger child to play with in case they lose interest in picking. Please, no throwing berries or running in the field. Our farm is along a busy highway and we also have three 1/2 acre ponds - watching your children is YOUR responsibility. 

Please leave dogs at home. We love dogs but they have no place in our fields or gardens.

Please be aware that older people and much younger people may have a more difficult time navigating the field. Our fields are on grass with no rocks. Walking is very easy. We have benches and shade for folks to take breaks under.

There is a Port-a-john available at the field as well as hand wipes, and paper towels.
