Amanda and Julie picked 30 pounds of strawberries in 30 minutes, which is a good pace for any picker here on the farm making them prime candidates for the farm crew. We do need their help as we have so many berries and so many orders, but not enough time to pick them all. The crew just picked 120 pounds for Pop Nation popsicle company in San Francisco, and they would like to buy more every week. We have also supplied strawberries for Benoit Yogurt.
Last weekend’s berries were the most we have ever had at any one time, and it was truly amazing. In the photo below, Austin and Margaret Yang are sporting our new “I (Strawberry) Eatwell Farm” T-shirts, which he designed for us. Our Mother’s Day strawberry event is full, but there are a few spots available for May 19th and May 27th.
