Strawberry Time

Updated: May 2

“Nature doesn’t steal time; it amplifies it.”  -Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods


We all feel the seeming acceleration of time as we age. If we are parents, we ask ourselves, “When did our babies become children or even (gasp!) teens?” The more we realize that time is indeed fleeting and childhood (or parenting) certainly doesn’t last forever, the more we realize we must choose to be intentional about the activities we provide for our children during their growing-up years. 


In addition to time acceleration, we are also no strangers to another aspect of time: windows of opportunity that open and close. Much of what we choose to do in life relates to the narrow window of time available to us in which to do that particular activity: mowing the lawn before the rain comes; baseball games in the spring and football games in the fall; beach vacations on spring break, and most recently the solar eclipse. 


This spring, take the time to inhale the scent and take in the beauty of every blossoming flower as a way to bear witness to all that nature has on display at this time of year. As you experience the reality that time is flying by and windows of opportunity are opening and closing all around you, we invite you to take advantage of another fleeting season of delight just around the corner: strawberry season. 


At Strawberry Run Farm in Clarksville, Ohio, we're gearing up for another unforgettable season filled with sun-ripened sweetness and cherished memories. But with the fleeting nature of strawberry season, you just have to make the most of every moment spent in our lush fields. Our berries typically ripen in late May to early June, and before you know it, they’re all picked, and the season is over! So why take advantage of strawberry season with those you love? 


Quality Time in Nature


In today's fast-paced world, finding time to connect with loved ones amidst the chaos can be a challenge. That's why a visit to Strawberry Run isn't just about picking strawberries - it's about immersing yourself in nature's beauty and savoring the simple joys of life. Picture yourself strolling through rows of vibrant greenery, the scent of strawberries filling the air as you laugh and bond with family and friends. Whether it's a leisurely afternoon with grandparents or a fun-filled outing with the kids, our farm offers the perfect backdrop for creating cherished memories that will last a lifetime.


The Picking Experience


There's something undeniably special about hunting for the perfect berry and plucking ripe, juicy fruit straight from the vine with your own hands. At Strawberry Run, we invite you to experience the thrill of u-pick firsthand. Feel the warmth of the sun on your skin as you carefully select the plumpest berries, knowing that each one is bursting with flavor and goodness. Whether you fill your basket to the brim or simply enjoy a few bites along the way, the joy of picking your own strawberries is an experience like no other.


Irresistible Products


But the sweetness doesn't end when you leave the fields. Back at our farm stand, you'll find an array of irresistible products made from our fresh, hand-picked strawberries. Dive into the bold flavors of our strawberry salsa, perfect for pairing with tortilla chips or topping grilled chicken. Wash it down with one of our private-label sodas, crafted with care using only the finest ingredients. And don't forget to stock up on jars of strawberry butter and preserves, the perfect accompaniments to your morning toast or afternoon scone.


At Strawberry Run Farm, we believe that every moment is precious, especially when spent in the company of loved ones. As Richard Louv observed, we can “amplify the time we have” by spending time in nature. 


Our customers love to experience nature in our strawberry fields–enjoying the simple joys of nature, family, and strawberries. Join us to establish traditions and make memories that will last a lifetime.
