PICKLING CUCUMBER U-PICK
We are excited to start a u-pick this year for our pickling cucumbers. We are growing them in a trellised format so they will be easier to pick. Growing cucumbers this way is much more work intensive, so we have several rules.
– Only one person or couple is allowed in the u-pick area at a time.
– Pickers must be over 12 years old, children are not allowed due to the nature of how we grow these cucumbers.
– Please bring your own containers to use. A container that will allow you to pick 10 lbs is recommended, there is an area you can put them into a larger container you bring before weighing.
– Cucumber less than 3 inches MUST NOT BE PICKED!! This is very important. If we see a lot of cukes smaller than 3 inches we will have to charge you extra.
– Cucumbers are $2.00/lb
Please email me (Fireweed_Farmstead@outlook.com) or text (778-882-2254) to book your spot. Please have an idea of how many you are aiming to pick so we can properly schedule people.
We are really hopeful we can make this a regular feature at our farm and thank-you in advance for following our rules and guidelines
