Summer and strawberries finally arrive
With the long-awaited arrival of warm weather, Fred's Farm Strawberries opened for business last week, and the pickers came. The berries were delayed by almost two weeks due to the colder than normal spring.
All berries are "pick your own," and strawberry boxes like the one on the scale are available for 65 cents each.
The patch is located on High Ridge Drive at the intersection of Hanley Road and Old Hwy. 35. Hours are Monday-Friday evenings, 6-8 p.m., and Saturday mornings, 8-11 a.m. To check on availability, call (715) 386-3299.
