Eckert’s sweet, juicy strawberries ripen in the spring and are our first pick-your-own crop of the growing season.
At this time (3/9/17) we anticipate that we will open Pick-Your-Own Strawberries around May 1, 2017. The cost of Pick-Your-Own Strawberries during the 2017 season will be $2.79/lb. Pick-Your-Own Strawberries will only be available at our Belleville Farm (951 S. Green Mount Road, Belleville, IL 62220)
As we kick off strawberry season, a field access pass will now be required to enter our picking areas. The all-day field access pass will allow you to enjoy fruit samples, unlimited rides to the picking areas, fresh farm air and lasting memories. The field access pass is $1/person (children under 2 are free).
These fantastic berries are delicious by themselves, with a little sugar, or in so many recipes. View some of our favorite strawberry recipes on our Family Recipe Blog.
Since ripening schedules and crop availability are not an exact science, always be sure to check the Eckert’s Crop Update to find out what crop(s) are available.
