Patterson Strawberries


To prepare you for this strawberry season, here are a few things we recommend for your trip to Patterson Farm:


  1. Purchase your tickets ahead of time (not required, but recommended). Tickets for the event can be claimed here.

  2. Wear sunscreen! Remember, the strawberries are supposed to be red - not you!

  3. Most importantly, bring empty stomachs. You’ll need the room for their famous strawberry milkshakes!



What Else to Expect at Patterson Farm

Along with this one-of-a-kind experience, your family will also have the chance to experience the rest of the fun at Patterson’s while you’re there. Between the barnyard animal petting zoo, yard games, a giant slide, and the most unique farm-themed playground equipment you’ll ever see, the activities at Pawpaw Carl’s Barnyard & Playground will be calling your kid’s name from the moment they lay eyes on it. These activities can be added onto your experience when you purchase your tickets online.


This year, Patterson Farm will be open 7 days a week, 9 A.M. – 6 P.M. throughout their strawberry picking season. So, grab those baskets and let’s get picking!


Can't make it to the field this season? Patterson also offers their delicious strawberries for sale at local grocery stores, produce and farmer’s markets, and roadside satellite locations so no one will miss out on strawberries this season! Visit their website to learn more.
