Basse’s taste of country happily invites you and your family, estimated to start in mid-June, to join us for u-pick strawberries. We begin our season with u-pick strawberries. Nothing marks the real beginning of summer like big, red, luscious and sweet strawberries! Also enjoy a family hayride to pick your own strawberries, and added “new” this year a “how to” pick your own strawberry video to help educate our customers to become super strawberry pickers!
We have 120,000 strawberry plants that burst every season and in 2017 Basse’s will plant 40,000 new strawberry plants for production in 2018. Stop in to pick your own delicious fresh strawberries right from the fields. Don’t forget to stop by our country store for all pre-picked strawberries, peas, and rhubarb while supplies last! Also check out our homemade strawberry donuts, pies, breads and our yummy strawberry sundaes while supplies last.
Our pea season also begins mid-June and usually starts about a week or two after the strawberries are ripened. We offer pre-picked sugar, garden and snow peas while supplies last.
