We want to thank everyone who came out and picked strawberries on our Saturday U-pick. There were very few berries left after the picking. The good news is that with the sun coming out we will have more ….the bad news is with the rain we have had there will be some rotten berries.
SOoo Tuesday we will have another U-pick day. We are going to call it 2 fer Tuesday. Why …. because at Hortons Farm everything gets recycled or re-used! We reuse rain water from our 5000 gallon rain tank. All of our scraps go to compost or the chickens, which brings us to the rotten Strawberries. If you will pick your good berries into 1 bucket and the rotten berries into a 2nd bucket we will give you your Organic strawberries fer $10 a gallon and the rotten berries you pick to the chickens instead of letting them rot on the vines or making a mess in between the rows for the next picker. If you would rather just pick your berries that’s ok 2 but they will be at the regular $15 fer gallon.
Come on out for 2 fer Tuesday U-pick from 9am until 6 pm as we start to wind down the 2015 strawberry season.
