This is the second installment of an ongoing series with a focus on small independent farms and creative use of farmland. We hope it serves as a reminder that the food grown and raised in Lancaster County is both diverse and extraordinary and that the people tending the land have stories worth telling. Join us in saluting our neighbors.

Wait and see. Play it by ear. That’s the prevailing sentiment from Lancaster County growers about this year’s strawberry harvest, particularly at pick-your-own farms. Last year’s pick-your-own season was called off due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which means there’s a clientele clamoring to make up for lost time and do some berry picking. The increased demand/interest combined with recent temperature swings and minimal rain (and uncertain harvests) have led many growers to take a more reserved approach, begging off final details for as long as possible.
