🍓Thursday, May 28 strawberry update: thank you to everyone who picked strawberries this past weekend and yesterday. Unfortunately, Mother Nature has caught up with us and we will not be scheduling appointments for this weekend. If you have an appointment currently scheduled, we will be contacting you later today to discuss options.

The freeze in May stopped production on one of our varieties that was blooming and the subsequent rainy days have slowed the ripening of the other varieties. Combined with the forecast, we do not feel comfortable that we will have an adequate supply to open the you pick right now. If you would like to be on our pre-picked list, please email us at info@libertymillsfarm.com with the quantity you are looking for. It will be easier for us to fill smaller requests, i.e. 1-2 quarts. 

There is also a possibility that we will be able to open in early June with limited availability, so keep watching for updates and let us know if we can help you with anything else, such as popcorn, fudge or ice cream. Thank you for your continued support of our family farm. It is deeply appreciated.

Before scheduling an appointment, it is important that you read and agree with our 2020 picking policies:

2020 Strawberry You-Pick Policies

Policies are per the recommendations of Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and are intended for the safety of our customers, employees and our community.

  •   If you are not feeling well, have a fever, are sneezing or coughing, or have any

        health issues, please stay home until your symptoms have passed.

  •   Check our Facebook page or website for weather updates and picking days/hours.

        A maximum of 4 people per reservation (if you have more people, simply make an

        additional reservation). The minimum amount sold from the you-pick field is a $20

        4-quart box which holds approximately 6-6.5 lbs. A reservation does not guarantee

        strawberries, as there are too many variables involved. We promise to do our best.

  •   Masks are recommended, but are not required. Check-in at the white tent

        near the Market prior to entering the fields. Picking groups (including children) are

        1-4 people. You may also order pre-picked berries, $6.50 per quart, and pick them up at the Farm Market   

        while supply lasts – order through the Facebook shop or via Facebook Messenger.

  • Our activity area will be closed and picnic tables will not be available for use. You may,

       however, bring a blanket and picnic under the trees and away from the Market area.

       Hiking our trails will also be permitted. Appropriate attire required.

  •   Restrooms are not available on the property.
  •   Follow all instructions on our signage and given by our staff members.
  •   A you-pick 4-quart containers will be charged at $20 up to 6.5 lbs. If your box weighs

        over 6.5 lbs, all picked strawberries will be charged at $3.10/lb.

  •   Your group will be assigned a row and must stay in that row the entire time. If all

        available rows have been assigned, we will not allow anyone else to pick

        until others leave the field.

  •   Strict social distancing of 6 feet or more must be maintained at all times with different

        picking groups.  All pickers must sanitize their hands before picking.

  •   No strawberries should be eaten in the field. Any fruit that is touched must

        go into your picking container. Please wash all strawberries at home prior to

        consuming them.

  •   Parents are responsible for their children at all times and children must be kept

        within arms length while in the patch.

  •   Pets, bare feet, smoking and alcohol are not allowed on the farm at any time.
  •   We reserve the right to close the fields for picking at any time, due to weather    

         conditions, lack of ripe fruit, non-compliance of our policies, or any other    

         unforeseen reason.

  •   Groups not following the rules will be asked to leave the farm.

Thank you for your patience and for your support! We will also have our homemade fudge and tractor-churned ice cream available for purchase when you check-out!
