Strawberry Picking at Rowand Farms

June 20, 2013(updated on October 3, 2018)

In an effort to switch things up a little, today I have a post of pictures and no (or at least, not very many) words. These are from a recent trip to pick strawberries at Rowand’s Farm in Glassboro, NJ. The strawberries and sweet cherries are now done for the season, but if you’re in the area, I hear they’ll have sour cherries through the weekend.

  • The big pile of strawberries is so luscious! I always used to get strawberry desserts for my June birthday, requested them so often I became the “strawberry girl” which made discovering the Siouxie and the Banshees song “Christine” even cooler.

  • Very jealous, due to very cold weather through the spring here in the UK everything is very late and the local PYO still don’t have enough ripe strawberries to open. They think it will be the end of june !

  • Your strawberries look gorgeous! My older brother went to Glassboro State College, so I am a bit familiar with the area, haven’t been for more than 30 years though! (showing my age) Glad you had fun 🙂

  • Marisa, Ive a question. My neighbor prefers a seeded blackberry, could I convert your tiny batch black ras to blackberry? I think a single half pint of jam from the berries on our hill would delight him, greatly.

  • I’m curious about your tiny corner of unripe strawberries – were those accidents or did you intentionally add in a few to help with flavor or set or….? Thanks for the lovely post!

  • I think I missed strawberry season around here, but blueberries will be ready soon. Plus, I have a crop of wild raspberries growing in my yard right outside my back door. Last year, I didn’t pick any (gasp!), but this year, I’ll be getting as may as I’m able and preserving as I go.

  • I’m making the strawberry jam from your book. I have the berries in the fridge with the vanilla. Ok I didn’t have beans so I used liquid.

    How long can I keep it that way before I can? I’m exhausted from making your blueberry jam! Should I freeze or will it hold for a few days?

  • OMG…scrolling through the blog and noticed you were in my old neighborhood. Nothing was better than the smell of the strawberries from the field and picking cherries with my Dad. Loved the post!
