U-pick strawberries

COLLECTION PERIOD
Depending on the season, the picking period begins in mid-June until mid-July. Sometimes the season can even stretch a bit. By following us on Facebook, you will have the daily data.

You can pick your strawberries yourself, or buy them already picked at the kiosk  at the reception.

 

CONTAINERS

We provide containers for collection. Other types of containers are not permitted, as strawberries are priced per container, not per pound.

HOW TO COLLECT THEM

Choose ones that are completely red, with no white or green spots. In fact, once picked, strawberries no longer ripen.

When the stem is green and the leaves are not wilted, the strawberry is fresh. Prefer firm fruits that are not damaged.

Check the condition of the strawberries and discard any with bruises. Damaged fruits rot quickly and can contaminate others. However, unless they show mold, these fruits can be used to make compote or jam. Just store them in an airtight container in the freezer and prepare the recipe when you have enough.

HOW TO STORE THEM

Clean fruit with cold water only when using. You can then hull them and prepare them.

Strawberries will keep for two or three days in the refrigerator. To get the most out of their taste, take them out an hour before eating them.

U-PICK

In addition to the picking of strawberries, raspberries and blueberries, we invite you to discover the picking of haskaps. Learn more about this little fruit whose taste is between raspberry and blueberry.
