Our farm provides the opportunity to Pick-Your-Own as well as purchase prepicked strawberries. We started our farm in 2003 and currently have about an acre. As the name of our farm infers, the patch is located on a gently sloped hill. This patch has frontage on Old Sauk Road in the town of Middleton, WI.
We are planning on also offering blueberries but that is several years off. The blueberry field will be behind our house in the north field. After several years of testing cultivars and understanding the nuances of blueberry bushes we have started field planting three year old plants.
Much of the work is done by hand. We apply fertilizer, carried up and down the rows in an ice cream container. In the winter time we spread straw by hand to protect the plants.
