    We had the best time picking strawberries today. The berries are delicious! The workers were so pleasant. Such a beautiful location. We will be back:)

    July 2013

    Strawberries were not ripe, bug eaten and rotton, under the top layer of “nice looking” berries, what a waste of money! $5.50 for something that was throw away,

    Plow Creek Farm response: We talked this over with Emily to apologize for the mistake and settle up. Normally, we would not have many strawberries to sell in July. This year, we have a very late variety called Record. These ripen to a dark orange and are more susceptible to water/bug damage. In addition, their flavor has been a disappointment this year. We will not be growing any more Record in the future.

    Berries settle in transit from the farm so we commonly top off the quarts by pouring additional berries on. Sometimes that “top layer” turns out to be nicer than the ones below, but we do not design it that way. To offer berries picked fresh shortly before their appearance at market, we hire pickers and try to enforce quality - pulling out underripe, overripe or damaged berries. But sometimes mistakes happen.

    I am 34 years old and never in my life had enjoyed eating strawberries, that is until my wife and I went and picked yours! I tried one and I must say they taste nothing like store bought ones. Just awesome! Good job guys!!

    These were by far the best strawberries I have ever tasted. My family and friends that tried them could not stop eating them! I look forward to getting more next year.

    I discovered your farm last year (2009) at the end of the season and the berries were FABULOUS! I can’t wait to return with my family this year. We are still enjoying strawberry jam I made from those berries.

    In honor of the rare-to-me overlapping strawberry/blueberry seasons, we made strawberry/blueberry freezer jam using the recipie in the Sur-Jel box. Funny, I don’t recall ever even noticing that recipie before! The dual-berry jam is delicious.

    Plow Creek strawberries are the best I’ve tasted anywhere. I remember the year that we picked 79 flats for freezing in the common kitchen. I also remember the year the bees got mad at me for disturbing their strawberry blooms and stung me on the head 2x’s.

    I LOVE THEM! If you haven’t tried one, you’re really missing something.

    A few years ago, I bought my two granddaughters, then ages 6 and 8 , to pick strawberries for their very first time. After I assured them that they really didn’t have to wash the berries first, they probably ate as many as they put into the baskets. In the heat of the afternoon, the entire car smelled of strawberries from the two baskets in the trunk and the pocketfuls the girls had stashed as snacks on the trip back from Tiskilwa.

    I enjoy fresh strawberry freezer jam, strawberry shortcake using sponge cake rounds, strawberries in berry Jell-O with cool whip folded in, and crushed strawberries over cheese blintzes. I’ve sliced strawberries and alternately layered them with sliced bananas for a strawberry-banana cream pie (using a standard banana cream pie recipe).

    IRENE SIMPSON of LaMoille tells about bringing her granddaughter to Plow Creek to pick strawberries. Grandma offered Melinda a strawberry to eat in the field. But reluctant Melinda wanted to wait until she got home so she could put sugar on the strawberries.

    Grandma made an offer, ďYou eat a bite, and Iíll eat the rest. Just taste this berry.Ē

    After a little bitty bite, Melinda replied, ďOh my, Grandma, we donít need sugar for these!Ē And she ate strawberries all the way home!!

    Youíve got the best strawberries Iíve ever eaten!

    I feel like I am in strawberry heaven when I pick here.

    I have just one complaint: the berries are too big. You need a knife to cut them in half to fit them in the box.

    My, these berries have been nice this year ó just wonderful.

    The juice is outstanding! I use the juice on top of pancakes. Itís a lot better than syrup.
