Hello and welcome to Middle River Farms! We are located in the heart of the scenic Shenandoah Valley, between Weyers Cave and Grottoes, just five minutes from Interstate 81. We look forward to you stopping by.
The goal of our family is to produce high quality locally grown strawberries, for you and your family. We concentrate our efforts toward the “pick your own” market, but with a day or two of advance notice we can provide pre-picked strawberries for those customers who prefer not to “pick their own”. We strive to present a fun and family oriented farm experience. We welcome strawberry pickers of all ages.
In addition to strawberries, we also raise beef cattle for butchering and grow pumpkins, indian corn, corn shocks, straw bales etc. for all your fall decorating needs. Thanks to all those who came and picked pumpkins last year making our pumpkin patch a smashing success.
We also will set up a fall display at your place of business or residence! Please contact us for further information about this service.
** Picking Report for Tuesday May 21** Today (Monday) we had some good sunshine and better than expected picking. The picking for Tuesday looks like it should be good as the berries continue getting much needed sun. The big storm missed us this evening and field conditions remain good and footing is dry and firm.
This Thursday we will have the first evening pick of the season. After our morning picking, we will again open at 4:30pm and pick until 7:00pm. Next weeks evening pick will be on Tuesday. We hope this will accommodate those who cant come during regular hours. See you at the patch!
Prices: U-Pick $1.79 per pound / Pre-Picked $2.79 per pound. (Please call a day or two in advance to order pre-picked berries)
Additional Items: In interest of supporting the "buy fresh buy local" concept, this year we will again have for sale during berry season locally produced items to include flowers, asparagus, tomatoes, pastured chicken eggs, and a small selection of other veggies. If there are items you would like to see us have on hand please let us know.
Hours of Operation: We are open for business from 7:30 am – until picked out, Monday through Saturday during Strawberry Season. Due to last years positive response we will again have one evening pick each week of the season. The hours for the evening pick are 4pm - 7pm.The only change to the hours of operation will be if an extra day of ripening is needed. Please feel free to contact us by phone or email about hours of operation or any other questions you may have.
