Strawberries

Strawberry Season is estimated to start mid-June and runs for about 3 weeks. 

Basse’s Taste of Country happily invites you and your family to join us for u-pick strawberries! Estimated to start in mid-June and ends around 4th of July. We begin our season with u-pick strawberries. Nothing marks the real beginning of summer like big, red, luscious, and sweet strawberries! Come enjoy a hayride with your family to pick your own fresh strawberries this summer!

We have 120,000 strawberry plants that burst every season and in 2021 Basse’s will plant 55,000 new strawberry plants for production in 2022.  Stop in to pick your own delicious fresh strawberries right from the fields.  Don’t forget to stop by our country store for all pre-picked strawberries & peas while supplies last! Also check out our homemade strawberry donuts, pies, breads and our yummy strawberry sundaes while supplies last.
