Strawberries Available for Delivery or On-Farm Pickup

We have extra strawberries this week! These berries are Certified Naturally Grown. We never spray our strawberries with harmful pesticides, herbicides or fungicides. And we don't use chemical fertilizers. These are the smaller, more flavorful gourmet varieties. So, they don't have that large pithy hole that most conventionally-grown berries have. They are at their peak this week and will be in decline soon. So enjoy them while they last.

Prices: $2.50 per pint ($2.00 for on-farm purchases), $32.00 per flat (16 pints) Call us at 931.623.3732 or email us at trish@BeaverdamCreekFarm.com to place your order.

Delivery: We can deliver them to our Riverwalk and Grassmere locations as well as to the Leiper's Fork and Franklin Farmers Markets. Or if you're in the mood for an outing, you can drive out to our farm and pick them up!

Freezing Instructions: Strawberries are easy to freeze. Simply wash, dry, and remove stems. Place on a cookie sheet and freeze overnight. Then put them in Ziploc baggies, date them, and store them in your freezer. You can take them out at your convenience and use them for smoothies, strawberry shortcake, ice-cream topping, strawberry daiquiris, pies, cobblers, muffins, etc. How about dipping some in chocolate?
