My grandkids and I had a blast picking the best tasting strawberries ever. They also have a large selection of hydroponically grown veggies. I picked fresh spinach and peppers right from the pot and they were delicious. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to accommodate my gluten-free granddaughter by making her a BLT salad (not... More

My girls love coming here. They have seasonal u-pick veggies and fruits in which my girls just beg to do pick! They have local honey, vegetable and fruits in their store front. They also sell anything from Amish jams, pickles, dipping sauces to made to order food to eat right at their picnic tables or rocking chairs! They have the... More

I thought the staff was extremely friendly, as you would expect on a "family farm". The fruits and veggies were fresh. The best part is the locally owned and operated. We need to support our farmers even if the cost is a bit more. It's got to be healthier not being handled so much. The only issue I have is... More

I took my 10 year old daughter and her friend because they wanted to pick their own strawberries. We ALL had the most fun day. Not only strawberries but all types of greens, beautiful cauliflower, cabbages were available in the hydroponic garden while we were there. I saw tomatoes and some other veggies growing in another area, waiting for picking... More

We have 4 kids 11, twin 7 yr olds, & a 2 yr old. They all had fun picking strawberries (other things to pick there too), seeing the bees, & having a delicious lunch. The hot dogs are huge, we split them in half! They had BBQ pork sandwiches, shakes (yum), smoothies, strawberry shortcake and more. The place was very... More

This hydroponic garden is worth visiting even if you don't go home with a bag or two of produce and gifts. Their strawberries are the best I've had since I've moved to Florida. You can pick them yourself from the hydroponic towers if you want to. Other winners were the yellow zucchini, Italian eggplant, poblano peppers, and lettuce. They have... More

We stopped in to pick strawberries. The plants are on tiers so they are super easy to pick whether you are 2 feet or 6 feet tall. THis would be perfect for someone in a wheelchair. You get a bucket and a small pair of scissors. The people there are SO Friendly. The kids got to sit on a tractor,... More
