Pick Your Own Strawberries
People from miles around drive to Carter’s Red Wagon Farm in Park Rapids to pick our delicious, sweet, and juicy strawberries! Our guests are taken by covered wagon out into the strawberry fields overflowing with beautiful red, ripe berries. We even invite you to try one or two to “keep up your strength” for this fun, family adventure! If you cannot make it to the farm, we have ready-picked strawberries available — at the Market ONLY.
Our u-pick strawberry season usually starts the last week in June and goes through mid-July. Depending on the weather and crop conditions, u-pick is Monday through Saturday (we are always closed on Sunday) from 7:00 a.m. until noon (unless we are picked out earlier in the day).
We charge “by the bucket” and have empty 5-quart ice cream buckets for you to use if you do not have any available to bring yourself.
We do not make appointments — come at your convenience — but PLEASE call first, 218-732-4979, or check this website, to make sure we are still picking. If crop conditions allow, we are open on July 4th.
We are a family-friendly farm and welcome children of all ages…but ask that you do keep your children under your control when at our farm. For your comfort and convenience, we have a wide variety of soft drinks and bottled water to purchase as well as strawberry glaze and other strawberry products.
Come out, have some fun, and enjoy your time!
