It’s time again for our annual Strawberry Jam festival! Bring the family out for a day of fun on the river. This year we will be hosting a great selection of food and craft vendors, as well as some mighty fine performers! The farm store will be open and serving up our famous Dream Whips!

The Festival will be 10AM until midnight.  Admission is free, and so are the memories you’ll make! Activities such as hayrides, U-pick strawberries, and wristbands for inflatables can be purchased the day of the Festival.
