Strawberry availability for the Memorial Day weekend
Because of several factors (see http://www.lakeview-farms.com/Strawberry_Picking.htm ) our 2016 supply/size of strawberries is much less than normal which has made picking more difficult and forced us to close early almost every day we have been open. We shut down picking for all day Wednesday, May 25, to allowing more ripe berries to be available and a rain day Thursday morning put us in better shape for the Memorial Day weekend. Still, you may want to get a head start on the holiday crowds by picking today, Friday, May 27, when the berry supply situation is good. We'll be open today from 12 Noon to 4 PM.

It is especially important his holiday weekend to call our berry hotline 636-978-8830 no earlier than the afternoon before coming or click the following link http://www.lakeview-farms.com/StrawberrySeason.htm no earlier than 6 PM the evening before coming just to make sure that we will be open for picking the next day and to get a report of the latest picking conditions.
