We welcome you to bring your family and friends for a memorable experience. And don't forget your cooler for Lever Farm raised meats.

  • When can I pick strawberries?
    Each year the PICK YOUR OWN schedule varies due to the South Carolina Midlands weather and crop abundance. Our season generally runs from April to June.
  • What should I wear?
    We suggest appropriate footgear like sneakers, boots, other closed toe, and no heels shoes. Be prepared to walk to where the best picking is in the field. Bring a hat and sunscreen for the sunny days.
  • Do you have to pick your own?
    Not up to the Pick your Own experience, we’ve got you covered! Pick up a basket of fresh picked in our farm market and while your there check out all our fresh produce, gluten-free baking mixes, fresh milk, eggs and signature meats!
  • What is the best way to pick strawberries?
    Pick by pinching the stem of the berry between your thumb and forefinger. This will prevent damage to both the fruit and the strawberry plant. Leaving the caps on helps your strawberries last longer. When selecting berries look for the ones that are plump, firm, and well colored. A tip to remember: THE REDDER THE BETTER.
  • What is the best way to store strawberries?
    Strawberries are best when prepared and eaten in the same day, but if you must keep them longer, store them in your refrigerator. Arrange the berries in a shallow container, separating out any damaged berries. Cover them loosely, and keep at 35 degrees for best results. Do not remove the caps or wash the berries until you are ready to use them.
  • What is the best way to freeze strawberries?
    Whole berries: Place one layer of clean, capped berries on a cookie sheet and freeze until firm. Remove from cookie sheet and package in freezer bags. Sliced berries: Add ½ cup sugar per quart of berries. Stir and allow the mixture to stand until sugar dissolves. Pack the fruit and juice into freezer bags or containers. Leave ¼ inch head space for pint containers. Sugar is not necessary for freezing but will help preserve color and texture.
