There are a million and one things you can make with a fresh batch of strawberries, and grocery stores tend to stock ones that come from Florida and California, ignoring the sweet babies that are grown right in our midst. But that’s probably for the better, since they’d probably charge you an arm and a leg.

It’s time to cut out the middle mad and get your strawberries straight from the farm itself. The Ambrose Family Farm on Wadmalaw Island has a whole field ready and waiting to be picked.

Starting today, April 15, from 12-5 p.m., Ambrose will open its strawberry fields for guests to come and pick the freshest strawberries by the bucket. Strawberries are $2 per pound, and $1.80 per pound for Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) members.

Also available for purchase are baby white turnips, arugula, asparagus, garlic, Rainbow radishes, sweet onions, and the last crop of collards.

You can also find produce from the Ambrose farm at the Stono Market on Johns Island every Monday-Saturday.
