Soon it will be time for STRAWBERRIES! We have had a really cold March and a cold start to April. Strawberries will be late this year. We have about a half acre of early Strawberries that are in bloom. They are Albion, Sweet Charlie, and Festival. Hopefully we will be picking those strawberries the first week of May. Not sure if there will be enough for pick your own on the early STRAWBERRIES, but we’ll see. Our Main season variety, Chandlers will be ready by the middle of May. We still have frozen Strawberries from the 2017 Season available in the Freezer in the Market. See you at the FARM!
When it’s Strawberry Pickin’ Time at Miller Farms Market, it’s time for:
- Pick-Your-Own—Due to the cold March and April, we’re not sure when the pick your own patch will open. We will update our website and Facebook Page regularly. The following information is how our season unfolds once we start picking. Come out and pick your own strawberries in our 3 acre strawberry patch. We offer free parking, free admission, park at the patch convenience, and free fresh air. Containers are provided. The Strawberry patch is located across the road from our Market by the greenhouses. Park at the patch, get your containers from the Red Hut, watch your children, pick your berries, check out at the Market on our Farm! PLEASE watch your children, especially crossing the road. Orange Plank Rd is a very busy road.
