What is strawBERRY month?
June is strawBERRY month at Mayberry Farms! Here in Wisconsin picking your own strawberries is a summer tradition for many. At Mayberry Farms, picking strawberries has been part of the Mayville community for more than 40 years. We are proud to carry on the strawberry picking tradition. As a result, of this short harvest season, we’ve declared it as “Berry month.”
Why is strawBERRY month important?
Due to our harsh winters and short growing season here in Wisconsin, we grow what’s called a “June bearing” variety of strawberries. This allows farms like ours to provide fresh, delicious and locally grown strawberries during the month of June which we call strawberry month. At Mayberry Farms, we know that the best strawberries are picked right out of the field. We use sustainable farming methods to grow strawberries that make eating healthier easier.
Store bought strawberries travel THOUSANDS of miles to get to you because they are picked under-ripe, and are not as nutritious nor as delicious and our fresh berries. Picking your own strawberries at Mayberry Farms taste better, are better for you AND stocking up for the year can save you money.
