The strawberry and sugar snap pea picking are available in June for approximately 2-3 weeks depending on weather and fruit production. The exact opening date is posted and confirmed on Facebook a few days prior to the actual opening. The last day of picking is also announced on Facebook only 2-3 days ahead. 

Iowa Orchard U-Pick Patch is located at 13140 NW 102nd Avenue in Granger on the Southside of Highway 141. View Map

 We are open *Monday-Sunday from 8 AM to 2 PM.
*Picking is weather permitting and subject to fruit availability.  If it is raining or rained the night before, we might be closed.  Also, strawberries do not ripen all at once, sometimes the field needs to recharge and green berries need time to ripen.  
 YOU MUST HAVE AN APPOINTMENT TO PICK. We have limited parking plus the availability of ripe berries changes throughout the season depending on the weather, variety production, and other factors.  Using a reservation system ensures your best picking experience and our ability to provide the best customer service. 
  You can sign up by using the link below or on our Facebook page. Reservations are offered for a few days at a time only, not the whole season – with the weather being a huge influence on strawberry production we can only guarantee picking for the nearest future. Thus, the link is updated to allow more reservations every few days as the season progresses. It will be posted on Facebook.

  • As strawberries grow low to the ground, no pets are allowed in the patch to avoid contamination.  If you are an owner of a service dog, please, let us know how we can help to accommodate you to the best of our ability.  An emotional support animal is not qualified as a service dog and not allowed in.

  • We provide you with a cardboard flat to pick into – no need to bring your own container.

  • Please, plan on having one adult per 3 children to keep an eye on them.

  • If bringing a stroller, have another person with you so you can take turns picking – the strawberry field is covered with thick straw making it impossible to push a stroller plus it damages the berries.

  • Fresh berries need to be refrigerated right away.

  • Prewashing berries before storage makes them go bad faster –  wash them right before consuming.
