Big News! The PYO Strawberry patch will be open twice tomorrow, Friday July 3rd.
We’ll start at 7:30 and be open until 1:30. Then we’ll pick up the evening shift and open from 4pm – 7pm. The weather looks fantastic for picking and enjoying the beautiful field, which is located at 985 Pleasant St. in New London, NH. We will also be open on the 4th of July 7:30-1:30.
To reach the Pleasant Lake Fields, go to the middle of New London and turn onto North Pleasant St. between Artisan’s and Lake Sunapee Bank. The fields are 1.8 miles down the hill on your right. You will see Pleasant Lake just before you get to the fields. For more information, call 526-2080. If you can’t make it to the fields today, we have pre-picked quarts available all day at the farmstand (37 Main St. in New London).
Call 526-2080 for the latest on the PYO strawberries.

I’m not sure how many strawberries make up a 100g. edible portion, but I aim to find out…
says here that about 8 strawberries are equal to one orange in terms of vitamin C content.
When we are open, stop in during normal business hours (Mon-Sat 9-6 & Sundays 9-4) and choose from hundreds of varieties and thousands of blooms. Beautiful setting, healthy plants and loads of color, texture and foliage. Priced at $12. per pound – pay at the farmstand.
