It is with great sadness that we must announce that Chesterfield Berry Farm will not be open for pick your own strawberries this season. Due to the much colder than normal fall and winter season this year our plants did not size up like normal, then on Friday, April 25 we had a really bad storm with high winds and hail that set the crop back and also damaged many of our Farm buildings and activities. We have agonized over this situation for the past 2 weeks and after many conversations we have determined the volume of strawberries that we have is just not enough to do pick your own the way it should be done and still supply our Farm Market in Brandermill Market Square with pre-picked strawberries. We just don’t feel right about inviting customers out for pick your own strawberries with the crop not plentiful enough to have a good experience. Fresh pre-picked strawberries will be available at Chesterfield Berry Farm Market located in Brandermill Market Square.
***** Strawberry Season tickets that were handed out in our store can be used for our 2014 Pumpkin Season.
****** C.S.A. Members will still have their Strawberry Season party and we will be emailing you soon with those details.
Thanks everyone for your continued support and we hope you will all come out and get our pre-picked strawberries from the Market.
