Owners of Little Sweet Strawberry Farm on Highway 52 say the economy may be the reason they're seeing more people come and pick their own fruit.
The "self pick" farm usually opens around March 17th, but because of this year’s rain, they had to delay opening for three weeks.
They say it cost them hundreds of dollars.
“The berries all got ripe at the same time. They should have gotten ripe the first of April so they all come in at one time. We lost a lot of berries that couldn't get picked and couldn't market because there were so many of them ripe at one time,” said Charles Carroll, owner of Little Sweet Strawberry Farm.
Little Sweet Strawberry Farm is open at 8am Monday through Saturday.
