We get questions all year from strawberry lovers asking to visit our farm for the chance to pick their very own strawberries. The time is now here!
Wish Farms is hosting a charity strawberry u-pick! Come spend the day with us and start a fun family tradition. Enjoy the beautiful views of the largest contiguous strawberry farm East of the Mississippi. We are setting aside strawberry fields with ripe ready-to-pick strawberries especially for this event. Get a car load together, pack a lunch (and your camera) and create some wonderful memories!
