“We’re excited to say that our USDA Organic Strawberries are ready for U-Pick!” said Megan Tyminski, farm operations manager.

Theodora Farms grows USDA-certified organic vegetables and herbs in Godfrey. The attached FarmStore acts as a grocery store, selling these products as well as other staples that people need, all locally-sourced.

Tyminski noted that you can’t get fresher food than picking it yourself. She added that organic foods are better for your health and the environment.

To enjoy U-Pick strawberries, stop by the FarmStore to get a bucket and directions to the rows of strawberries. You can then pick as many strawberries as you’d like. You’ll weigh your harvest at the register and pay only $4 per pound of strawberries. Be sure to bring a container so you can transport your strawberries home.

“If you think about the freshness and the quality of our produce, it is hyperlocal,” Tyminski said. “Happy snacking!”
