Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
When Is Strawberry Season?
- Strawberry season in Loudoun County usually begins sometime in May and lasts somewhere between four and six weeks. The weather determines when we start picking and for how long. A cold spring pushes the field opening day back, as the plants are slower to form blossoms and ultimately berries. An extremely hot spring (with days over 90 degrees) will shorten the season, as the plants shut down when exposed to several 90 degree days in a row.
When is Pumpkin Season?
- Generally, we open our fields the last weekend of September and stay open through the weekend before Halloween. We keep our homepage updated with specific dates each season.
Do You Charge an Admission Fee?
- There is no fee to come to our farm. You simply pay for what you pick. During pumpkin season, hayrides and corn maze activities each have a fee if you choose to enjoy them.
What Form of Payment Do You Accept?
- We accept cash, checks and credit cards (Visa and Master Card).
Where Can I Learn About Weather Closings?
- Inclement weather can force us to close at any time. We will make every effort to inform you of these closings on our homepage at www.wegmeyerfarms.com as well as our facebook page: www.facebook.com/wegmeyerfarms.
Are There Restrooms?
- There are portable restrooms on site, along with hand sanitizing stations.
Are Dogs Allowed on the Farm?
- We love dogs, but ask that you leave your favorite friend home. Dogs are not allowed to enter our fields for health reasons, although they can stay outside the fenced field areas if on a leash with you.
Is There Handicap Accessibility?
- You will be walking on unpaved farmland and we do not have specific handicapped access. While wheel chairs, strollers and wagons can be brought on the premises, we urge you to use caution when considering whether to take them inside the fields. Like any farm, the paths can be bumpy.
