At the Farm:
- Walk between plant rows only.
- Pets are NOT allowed in the field.
- NO Smoking while handling fruits and Vegetables.
- Beware of uneven, slippery ground conditions and irrigation lines.
- Sanitize your hands before picking.
- Select plump, fully ripe berries.
- Carefully place the berries into your container. Don’t overfill your containers or try to pack the berries down.
When you get Home:
- Don’t wash the berries until you are ready to use them.
- Leave the green caps on the berries until they are ready to be used. This keeps them juicier!
- You can easily freeze berries that you cannot use right away. Just wash, cut the green caps off and pop them into a freezer bag. Remove as much air as possible.
