2017 Strawberry Prices:
Pick-your-own: $2.05 per pound
Pre-picked:  $4.25 per pound
Picking Baskets:  $1.50 each

***IMPORTANT BERRY PICKING POLICY***

Phillips Farms suggests berries be picked and taken home in our re-usable baskets.  These baskets can be purchased for $1.50 each and hold around 6 quarts of berries.  While you are welcome to bring your own container to take your berries home in, berries must be picked and weighed in our baskets.  Berries can then be transferred to your container, but please be aware that this transfer often bruises the berries.  In order to take home the best, most beautiful berries, we recommend using our baskets.  Once you’ve purchased our baskets, you can bring them back again and again to use in our fields.
