Growing strawberries isn't an easy process. A lot of hard work and planning goes into making sure Sugar Hill has the most delicious strawberries around! Here are the steps we take each year to provide our customers with buckets and buckets of their favorite strawberries.
Before we can plant the strawberries, we have to prepare the ground! This means using our tractor with a special attachment that pushes the dirt into neat rows, lays the irrigation system, and lays the plastic on top of everything; all at once!
Next, we use a different attachment on the tractor to puncture holes into the plastic about 15" apart while also dropping the baby strawberry plants into these holes.
What do plants need to survive and grow healthy and strong? Fertilizer! Throughout the growing process, the irrigation system under the plastic feeds fertilized water to the plants to keep them growing and growing.
Strawberry plants don't like weather that's too cold. So, when it gets too cold, we cover them up with frost blankets. This protects the budding blooms from freezing.
When spring comes, so do blooms. Our bees help pollinate all the plants so these blooms can turn into the juicy, bright red strawberries you love!
Finally, about early to mid March, we open the u-pick! The strawberries will continue to make into late May until it gets too hot for them.
Here are just a few of the fruits and vegetables we will have at our strawberry patch. All of the produce has different seasons, so follow our Facebook page to stay updated on what we have! Some vegetables are available for u-pick at the patch including: broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce, kale, onions, and collards.
