Come see how strawberries grow and enjoy a farm experience while you have fun picking our juicy, delicious Ontario strawberries. It’s our 30th year of Pick Your Own (PYO) strawberries and it’s so much fun to meet grandparents, parents and children who make it a tradition to pick strawberries together in our fields.
No time to pick? We have plenty of ready-picked strawberries available by the litre and by the flat in our Farm Market and at Reesor’s Market & Bakery, Main St., Stouffville.

We plan to have PYO strawberries available until early July, but strawberries are very sensitive to the variables of heat and rain, so please plan to pick soon. Our planned PYO hours for June 18 and June 20-25 are 8 am-5 pm, but may change according to the weather. Please call 905-640-4568 for a pre-recorded message about hours and picking conditions for the day you plan to come pick. Please remember we are closed Sundays.
Here’s what to expect when you pick strawberries at Reesor’s:

  • Free admission to the field.
  • Straw between the rows and under the berries making it more comfortable for you and keeping the strawberries cleaner when it rains.
  • Helpful, friendly staff at the fields to assign you rows of strawberries from which to pick, so you can pick more berries more quickly.  You won’t be picking from picked-over berries.
  • Bring your own containers or purchase baskets from our staff in the strawberry fields.
  • Convenient field-side parking.
  • Hand washing & toilet by the field.
