Lakeview Farms

Save money by reusing your fruit containers

Recycle Logo
At Lakeview Farms we do more than just provide lip service to the concept of being sensitive to environmental issues.

Since1979 we have been providing a financial incentive to encourage our berry customers to reuse the containers that we provide for bringing fruit home.

For 2016, we have increased the $0.80 discount to $1.15 for each box a strawberry customer returns to pick in (requirement: one of the standard 8 quart waxed cardboard containers that was initially provided by Lakeview Farms or one of our pick-your-own competitors)   Quite a few customers have managed to take good care of their containers between berry seasons and used them for several years running !   Keep in mind that because of the wax coating, these strawberry u-pick boxes cannot be used by recycling centers and must be sent to a landfill.

For raspberries we offer a $0.05 discount for every clear plastic half pint till and $0.50 for each cardboard box reused by the customer.
