During strawberry season in June, Springridge strawberries are picked fresh daily and available in a 1.5L basket or 4L basket.
There is no pick-your-own at Springridge Farm.
After more than 30 years of offering pick-your-own strawberries, we have discontinued strawberry picking at the farm. In recent years, we've experienced a major shift in our strawberry harvesting. More and more of our visitors are choosing to purchase freshly picked berries and fewer are choosing pick-your-own. Even though the market for strawberries has changed, we are still growing and harvesting Springridge strawberries. We aprpeciate your support as we grow forward and begin another delicious strawberry season!
