Picking strawberries is the perfect opportunity to learn about where our food comes from or to remind yourself just how flavorful fresh berries are supposed to taste. For those who might need a little help in the field, we also offer pre-picked berries. Please call ahead to place your order. Don’t forget to pick up a jar of Wegmeyer Farms strawberry preserves – so yummy!

Strawberries are sold by the pound – $3.99 per pound; there is NO admission fee, so you only pay for what you pick.

Our strawberries are grown on raised plastic beds, which keeps the berries clean, dirt-free and makes for easy picking. We offer one-gallon picking containers for your berries, which you will get when you check in at the strawberry hut. We accept cash, checks, Visa and Mastercard.

Tips for Your Visit to Wegmeyer Farms

  • Call before you leave the house. Ripening of strawberries is dependent on the weather. Call to be sure that a good supply will be available on the day you want to pick. If you want to pick up a large quantity of ready-picked berries, call in advance to see if you can reserve some. (540) 751-1782.
  • Pick early or late in the day, when it is cool. Your strawberries will keep better and you’ll enjoy yourself more!
  • Dress appropriately. Consider wearing long sleeves if the serrated edges of the leaves tend to irritate your arms. Access to fields is generally easy, but appropriate shoes or sandals for outdoor walking and a hat for sun may also be good ideas.
  • For PYO, dress small children in red or dark colors. Then you won’t need to worry about the inevitable juice stains
  • Please follow signs and directions and respect farm property. We are concerned about the safety and welfare of everyone who visits our farm.
  • Please watch your children. Don’t let them trample the rows, climb on farm machinery, or wander off towards farm ponds or the road.
  • No pets are allowed in the berry field. For the safety and health of all, pets are not allowed in the berry field and must stay in the vehicle.
  • Care for your fruit on the way home. Don’t put your berries in the trunk of your car or leave them sitting in the car if it is sunny. Consider bringing an insulated cooler along.
