STRAWBERRY U-PICK

STRAWBERRY U-PICK

We have evaluated the patch after another busy weekend of  Strawberry U-pick. We have decided to keep the patch open mornings only from 8 AM to 12 PM this week starting June 17 due to the high temperatures in the afternoons.  Please check the website to confirm each day, but we will be open in the mornings as long as berries continue to be available for picking. We will always try to have some pre-picked strawberries available as much as we can this week. Our fall raspberries will start around the end of August and into September. Our farm stand with free range eggs and fresh produce will continue to be open on Saturdays from 8 AM – 12 PM until the end of September.

U-Pick Location Ann Arbor

Please note, our strawberry field is NOT located at Tantre Farm in Chelsea. Tantre Farm has developed a u-pick patch for the public in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Our new u-pick patch is contained within 160 acres on the corner of Scio Church and Zeeb Roads. Follow the painted signs to the Honey Bee U-pick patch, which is approximately at 5700 Scio Church Rd. when using GPS.  You will see a newly constructed, timber frame barn when you enter the driveway in the middle of a field.  Read about how Tantre Farm started using this property and how this land is being restored here. We will be providing updates regarding our patches ASAP. Please use the form at the bottom. add yourself to our mailing list. Please look for our Strawberry-shaped signs north of Scio Church Road.

Strawberry U-pick Prices – $6/Pound
Already Picked – $5/Pint (available on a first come, first serve basis)

**We accept Cash, Checks written to Tantre Farm, and Venmo. We don’t process credit cards except through PayPal, but then we have to pay the 3% PayPal fee. Thanks for your support!

Parking

Please park perpendicular to the driveway on both sides. Please do not angle park or parallel park in this area, since it will limit the traffic flow. Follow the directions of the strawberry attendant.

Notice to pickers:

**Although we enjoy all kinds of animals, please only bring pets on a leash to this site, and not in any of the buildings or fields where there is food. You can walk them around the parking areas or on any trails.
**Please dress for the weather: sun protection, rain coats, light clothing, maybe pants and closed toes shoes, since there are some weeds, especially nettles and thistles. We are not spraying chemical herbicides on our fields, and we are renovating old abandoned farm fields.
**Keep comfortable, so bring your own water, mosquito repellent, your own snacks and feel free to bring take-home containers.
**Please pick in the designated areas, since our attendant will direct you to the ripe berries.
**Please use the trash bins and recycle bins or bring your trash home.
**We will have a porta-potty available for use, but this site has no electricity and no running water.
**Your children should be with you at all times, and not climbing on any of the equipment.
