Connecting moms in Polk County, Fla.
C&B Farms has opened their strawberry fields for U-pick this week. They are a Polk County farm located off of Shepherd Road on Bailey.
Bring you own containers to dump your strawberries in. The farm will provide pickers with quart containers to pick in. The cost is two quarts for $1.00.
The address is:
4655 Bailey Rd Mulberry 33860 - 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM - Look for a sign that says u-pick strawberries C&B Farms
For more information you would have to ask one of the owners, Lisa Bailey.
the first stall i stopped at this afternoon - in the produce/flea market just north of i-4 on 39 above plant city - had full , freshly-picked flats of huge , sweet strawberries at $7 a flat. i got 4 flats , could have shopped around , could have haggled..
but they are mighty good and worth the money not to pick...lol.
thats a great price ronald. the fruit stand by my house is 12 a flat and they were terrible and most of them were full or fruit flys. yuck.
i know my daughter will like to pick.
Yes, we are definitely going to do a PolkMoms pick together, wild horses can't keep me away from that day! :) I called Mr. Wingate (the farm owner that hosted us last year) yesterday and left him a message. I hope to hear back from him soon. : )
When I talked to him a few weeks ago, he was eying the last weekend of March for us. I will let you know as soon as I hear back from him. :)
I promise to post updates in this PolkMoms Strawberry Pick 2011, thread.

I can only go on Saturdays. I thought there was going to a Polk Moms, strawberry picking party towards the end of the month. Anymore definitive plans for that yet, Shawn?
