Where to Pick Strawberries in Maine

Posted on June 8th, 2015 by dianeatwood | Catching Health Stories

strawberries
Is there anything else quite as delicious as a handful of freshly picked strawberries? Check out the Catching Health list of farms across Maine that let you pick your own strawberries. If a farm has a website or Facebook page, I included a link. Otherwise, you might want to call ahead to make sure it’s open for picking.

Wherever possible, I have included information about a farm’s use of pesticides.

If you want to add a farm or additional information to the list or notice something that needs to be corrected, please let me know. I’ll tell you how at the end of the post.

Whenever possible, we will use organic, or natural production systems to enhance soil chemistry and plant health. Sometimes, because of the size of our operation, or due to the fact that organic methods are ineffective, we will use man-made chemistry to assist our production in a way that has the least risk to us, the crop, and our customers.

Jordan’s Farm
21 Wells Road
767-2740
At Jordan’s Farm we employ sustainable farming practices. This means that we use green manure ground covers, amend our soil with compost and use chemical pesticides and herbicides as little as possible to preserve the natural nutrients of our soils.
