On days the patch is open for picking, the hours are 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m or until picked out.

**We highly recommend calling (802) 785-4737 before coming out to pick. Calling ahead ensures that there are ripe strawberries available before you make the trip.


Please park in the overflow lot. The berry field is located just beyond it. Coming from the north, turn left just past the greenhouses and follow the road down to the parking lot on your left. From the south, turn right just before the greenhouses.

    You-Pick Tips

    • Look for flowers that have freshly opened buds and avoid cutting flowers that haven’t opened yet. Varieties of flowers that produce one blossom per stem (such as zinnias, dahlias or asters) prefer to be cut after the bud has begun to open. Varieties that produce multiple flowers per stem (like snapdragons, larkspur, and delphiniums) prefer to be cut when blooms on the lower 1/3 of the stem have opened. The remaining blooms will continue to open after cutting.

    • Cut the stem of the flower above a new leaf set to encourage branching. To ensure that our gardens continue producing, please do not cut stems longer than 12 inches unless it is a Gladiola or a Sunflower. Gladiolas and Sunflowers can be cut all the way to the ground. Harvesting extra long stems with multiple buds and branching points will count as more than one stem. Lisianthus will have clusters of buds at the top of a stem; in this case, you may cut a stem with buds.

    • Try to find a mixture of textures, colors, and flower varieties, which will add interest to your bouquets. For greenery, look for Bupleurum, Eucalyptus and ornamental grasses.

    • Bring a bucket or container that can hold water for your freshly cut stems. Flowers wilt quickly in the heat and do best when placed directly into water. If you forget to bring a container or don’t have one, we do have small buckets for sale near the pottery area.

    • Cut your stems on an angle when arranging your flowers in a vase. This will allow the plant to take up more water.

    • Discard any foliage that will be below the water level in your vase. Leaves under water will break down quickly and clog up stems resulting in a shorter vase life.
