Southern New Hampshire First Fruit, Strawberries!

Jun 12, 2011 No Comments by

Late this year but the fields open for the season Monday Morning June 12th! Could be we were spoiled by last years early opening, but the weather this year should make up for that. The weekend was full of rain with our weather station near Sunnycrest reporting just about a half inch or rain Saturday and Sunday early. That should make for big plump berries Monday morning!

The season lasts into July so be sure to visit us over the next month, you just can’t eat to many Strawberries!  The rhubarb is coming up now too, so if you can find some at a local small farmstand or even in the market, make an extra pie.  Just don’t leave it cooling on the windowsill, you never know what could happen…

Family checking with the Sunnycrest workers to find the best spot to pick Strawberries

This Huge crop of delicious giant strawberries ready for picking from 7am till 6pm in Londonderry, New Hampshire at two farms. Some fields are being rotated along Adams Road our scenic byway here in town, plenty of active fields are available further in at the farm, just turn at the big strawberry sign, next to the Christmas tree farm. You will see the stand and likely the backs of pickers hard at work starting at 7am. Morning picking only at Sunnycrest fields close at noon.

Elwood Orchards is open longer, from 8am through 6pm. If you seen no one in the fields located on the east side of the farm near the power lines, head to the farmstand for our containers. Then it’s back to the field for U-Pick strawberries in Southern New Hampshire.

Both farms often have strawberries on had picked for you if you are in a rush. 45 minutes from the seacoast, the White Mountains, or even Boston, Strawberries plump Red and on the vine. U-Pick Cherries will be out this month, Blueberries and Raspberries early in July.
