Merck Farms Updates

Hello friends!!

Our 2018 spring and summer U-pick will likely start in February with strawberries. This is earlier than normal like last year and due to an overall warmer than normal winter. With that said, we have also experienced more nights below freezing than we could have ever imagined. As of the beginning of February, we have overhead-irrigated strawberry plants 16 nights to protect blooms and berries. We have also experienced above normal rainfall slowing down field progress since Hurricane Irma passed through in September 2017. The weather has been crazy to say the least!

If you haven't done so already, please go to our Merck Farms Facebook page and "Like" it to get all of our updates as soon as they are posted. The status page also provides real-time Facebook updates below this overview.

Take care and God bless!
