Garden Hill U-pick Farm
2023 update: our strawberry U-pick season is now closed. Thank you to everyone who picked with us
Community and family are part of our tradition, which is why every summer we open our strawberry fields and let you pick your own berries.
Picking your own berries allows you to reconnect to where your food comes from, is a cost effective way to bake or make jams, and an active outdoor family experience.
From approximately the 3rd week of June to the 2nd week of July our fields are open, weather permitting, for U-pick. Come alone, come with family, bring your own container or buy on site. A berry is never as fresh as when you pick it in the field yourself.
Located at 3402 Ganaraska road, our U-pick farm is in the fields adjacent to our market, where you can cool off with a refreshing drink or fresh scooped ice cream.
We groweight varieties of strawberries maturing from early to late season.
