Lewis Creek Farm, Starksboro
June is the month for strawberries. They start the month with strawberries from their high tunnel and end the month with outdoor strawberries. Somewhere along the way, they will be open for pick-your-own. Traditionally, strawberry season started with the first day of Summer, June 21st, and lasted through July 4th or even mid-July. In the last few years, the season has moved earlier so that they have often started picking by June 12th or so, but it also means that they rarely have any berries left on the 4th of July.
Please call for pick-your-own hours!
