May 21, 2023-Strawberry Season 2023 is now over. The strawberries we picked this year were nice red, juicy, and had wonderful flavor. Unfortunately, the Lord gave us a short season. We started picking in April which was very early and we are now finishing up Mid May 2023. We are going to host our 2023 DIG and TAKE Event in the next few weeks. Please see our Facebook page for details. You can dig up plants for $1/ plant to take home and start your own strawberry patch, raised bed, container garden.
If you just found our farm-its nice to have you. Sorry you missed us this year. We communicate many details about our planting and strawberry season on our Facebook page-Country Road House and Berries.
The way you can come pick strawberries with us is to schedule a strawberry picking appointment on our website. These are usually load these appointments in Mid to late April. We pick strawberries Mid to late May each year . We also allow folks to order our strawberry baskets and we will pick them for you. You will not find this feature on our website until mid to late April every year.

What can you do while you are here picking strawberries?
Have a picnic or snack. There are several picnic tables set up around the farm or you can bring a blanket and set up under a tree by the creek.
Play in the creek with our nets and look for small fish, crawdads, and other treasures.
Visit our farm animals-our chickens, ducks, and (please do not pick up the Rooster).
Take a hike up in our woods-some fitness recommended-steep inclines but worth the effort.

If it is a rainy day, we can be flexible of the time you bring your family-normally in West Virginia it is rare for it to rain all day in May-there will be breaks and we be monitoring when those breaks are forecasted. We will be in touch with you the day of to discuss the weather and your schedule. Your family will never forget picking strawberries in the rain-trust me it will be certainly be a memory maker. If there is lightening we will take shelter until the danger has passed. There are no refunds for rain.
