Pick Your Own Strawberries
June 20, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 6:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 9:30 am, repeating until June 30, 2020
Russel Orchard has 6 varieties of strawberries located in three fields covering three and a half acres. The most prolific varieties include AC Wendy, a large early berry with excellent flavor; Annapolis, another early berry with large, beautiful fruit; Jewel, a popular mid-season variety with superb flavor; and Winona, a late-mid-season berry bearing beautiful, conical fruit of excellent flavor and quality. There are also lots of small, sweet berries, which are sometimes the most flavorful. Pick-your-own strawberries usually opens by early to mid-June and can be over by the 4th of July. We like to remind people that when schools let out for the summer, they need to plan their strawberry picking outing. Our strawberry plants are covered with a layer of actual straw in the winter to protect them from cold damage
