 HOURS AND MAP 

Our 2016 pick-your-own will start Sunday June 19th with the most eagerly anticipated fruit, fresh strawberries.  Whether its to make jam, pies, freeze or eat fresh from a bowl, Whittamore's strawberries are plump, juicy and delicious. Check back in early June for an exact staring date. Start a tradition  with your family and enjoy a day in the country, alongside the Rouge River Valley (part of the NEW Rouge National Urban Park) picking one of natures great taste treats, fresh strawberries.

 

Fresh raspberries, the champagne of all fruits are next to follow at Whittamore's. Picking starts in early July.  Whittamore's raspberries are trellised so picking is enjoyable, fun and easy. They affordably priced so you can easily freeze them to enjoy during the rest of the year.


Don't forget to get your veggies, nutricious, delicious and fun.


Bring our own container or you can purchase empty containers at the farm. Strawberries and raspberries need a rigid sided container (no plastic bags). Plastic bags are ok for the veggy crops.
