How do I pick strawberries at Mac's Berry Farm?
a) You will be placed in an isle where you will be instructed to pick half of the row on your right and half of the row on your left. The person in the isle next to you will be picking the other half of the row.
b) Pick only berries that are fully red using both hands (unless you are picking Cavendish-they will have a white side). If you see any spoiled strawberries, please toss those in the row to help keep our patches clean and producing as long as possible.
b) When you are done picking for the day, walk back to where you started and pick up the flag. Bring the flag to where you finished picking and push into the isle so that we know where to start the next person off who comes to pick.
d) Keep berries out of the sun and a hot car as much as possible. Keep the strawberries in the refrigerator with a wet towel over them so they will last as long as possible. Leave the stems on them until you are ready to use them.
If you have ANY questions, please ask!
