Q:  Are your berries organic? GMO (Genetically Modified)?

A:  No, we are not a certified organic Farm. However, we only use a very light pesticide when needed on our strawberries and we do it at a time to not disturb the bees that are pollinating the berries. We do not use pesticides in our blueberry and blackberry fields unless necessary. Our berries are not GMO.

A: It is our recommendation that you always pick first. During certain seasons when we are busier than others we could be picked out early.
