The local strawberry season is still in full swing and could continue through March depending on the weather.
Oak Haven Farms & Winery, a family-owned U-Pick strawberry farm in Sorrento, has seven acres of their twenty-acre farm available for picking. Priced at $3.50 a pound, visitors can pick rows of ripe berries or opt for pre-picked berries sold for $4 per pound.
The Stauderman family has owned the farm for over twenty years and strawberries have been a staple. Nine years ago, a vineyard was added to grow grapes for making sweet local fruit wines.
The farm is family-friendly and offers a free obstacle course, playground, short zip line, as well as a hayride on weekends. Pets are not permitted at the farm.
Inside the white barn, shoppers can taste and purchase the farm’s fruit wines, as well as find pre-picked berries, condiments, and local honey. On weekends, the kitchen in the barn sells u-roast hot dogs, drinks, fresh strawberry shortcake, and ice cream.
