Strawberry picking is done for this season. Thanks to all of you coming out to see us this year! Hope to see you late September through October for Pumpkins, Hayrides and lots of Fall Fun on the EAST FRONTAGE RD. just north of McDonalds at the Farmhouse Ice Cream Parlor (5687 Steinkraus Ln., Abrams, WI.)
Because we depend on mother nature to ripen the strawberries the beginning of each season may vary. The strawberry season can start anytime from the 1st week in June to the last week in June. Once the season starts it will last about 3-5 weeks. It is important to call ahead in the beginning of June to get an idea of when the season will start.
Call BerryLand: (920) 826-7297 for up-to-the-minute information on picking times, what is in season, to order pre-picked or to arrange a Haunted Hayride for your school group or club.
