Strawberry Picking Starts Friday
Rowe’s Produce Farm in Ypsilanti will have u-pick strawberries beginning tomorrow, Friday, June 3. We have picked strawberries at Rowe’s Produce Farm several times over the years.
Strawberries are often limited in early days and they will not always be open all day or may need to close for a day or two for berries to ripen. I suggest calling (or checking their Facebook status) to see if they still have strawberries available for the day.
ONE FOR THE MONEY …… TWO FOR THE SHOW …… THREE TO GET READY ….NO … NOT GET READY …. THREE IS GO GO GO…
Berry Picking Logistics
Rowe’s Produce Farm is located at 10570 Martz Rd, Ypsilanti. We typically take I-94 East of Ann Arbor to the Rawsonville Rd exit and head south to Martz Rd.
This year strawberries are $2.11/lb. Boxes for picking are provided free of charge when you check in at the barn to find out which fields are currently available for picking.
Upcoming Sponsored Events
We have picked strawberries at Rowe’s several times through the years and my daughter loves helping to pick the berries. Yesterday, my Facebook memory included a post from when she was in Kindergarten where she said that “Strawberry picking is almost as much fun as recess”.
Peas at Rowe’s Produce Farm
Rowe’s Produce Farm also offers u-pick peas. Their peas are not currently ready for picking. Check back to their Facebook page for updates on when the peas are ready for picking.
Experiences at Rowe’s Produce Farm
We have picked strawberries several times over the years at Rowe’s Produce Farm. I definitely recommend picking berries on a weekday if possible. When we went on a Saturday in June 2012, we waited in line for an hour to pay for our berries.
I love having fresh berries around the house. In addition to eating the berries, I typically make strawberry jam. This year I am also planning to make more of the Strawberry Mint Agua Fresca and the Mixed Berry Agua Fresca that I made last year.
