Strawberry PYO

Our Strawberry fields are closed for the season.

For updates about where we’re picking on weekdays, please call the farm stand at 978-682-6332 ext. 0

Strawberries this year are $8/quart and there is a $2/person entry fee. When picking is open, our hours of operation are 8am – 5pm.

There will be changes in how we conduct PYO strawberries in accordance with State and CDC Guidelines. Please see below for specific changes, and a link to our full PYO safety protocols for 2020:

  • Check the smolakfarms.com website for picking conditions as they change regularly and sometimes without warning.
  • We have 3 picking sites, two in North Andover and one at Small Oxx Farm located at 494 Ipswich Road in Boxford.
  • Masks are to be worn at all times and hand sanitizer is placed at every location.
  • There will be limits as far as how many people are allowed in and groups should stay together.
  • Picking and pricing are by the container supplied by Smolak Farms.
  • Your own containers are not allowed.
  • Pets are not allowed in the fields unless they are service pets with a license.
  • Please be patient with our new policies as this is a learning process for all of us.
  • Our farmers have all been in contact with each other, the Farm Bureau and the MA Department of Agricultural Resources in developing this protocol.
  • A big THANK YOU for helping our farm continue to be an asset to the community.

Please see our complete PYO Safety Guidelines for the 2020 season.
