We are very excited to offer a better way to pick! We introduced our berry picking Baskets in 2014!! We are using a system for picking that growers down south use to minimize damage to fruit and make picking easier.
We offer 2 different size containers. The price of each container will be determined by the crop in season. The smaller ‘MiniBasket’ is our "minimum picking requirement" for a single person. The ‘Regular Picking Basket ‘ is the minimum requirement for groups of 3 or more. Volume discounts are available with either size.
We do not weigh the baskets. They are sold on an ‘each’ basis and you can put as much or as little as you care to in the basket.
Customers prepay for their ‘first’ container in the Farm Market and get directions to the field. Additional containers will be available in the field for those that want to pick more.
Some of the Advantages:
• Customers will no longer need to wait in line after picking for fruit to be weighed in order to determine the amount to pay. Just count up containers you've put fruit in!
• Each person picking can have their own container, or can share.
• Customer will know ahead of time the amount they are spending that day.
• The handles are great.
• The picking baskets are sturdy, more durable and recyclable
• They’ll fit easier into refrigerator
• Vented sides will allow fruit to cool faster and stay fresh longer.
• This year we will provide the basket free for picking.
We stopped using waxed cardboard picking trays.
