Hinegardner's Other Produce

We have more than just apples!

Other Fruits

We sell many of the different kinds of our produce at Fareway stores in Marshalltown, Tama-Toledo, and Grinnell.

Strawberries

StawberriesStrawberries are a great addition to our orchard and for many years we have raised "Honeyeye" strawberries.  We have 3 acres of delicious strawberries usually ready for picking around June 6th.

First of all we completely cover the field. This keeps the plants a little warmer under the snow. Later we remove the rows and put them into paths to create a mud free path for our customers while picking. The berries are in rows about 3 feet wide. We have the fields divided into several sections. Customers wanting to pick their own are assigned rows according to how many berries they want and the number of people in their party. 

Pick your own berries are sold at $1.80 per pound and pre-picked berries are sold at $30.00 a flat.

We plan to have berries at our store outlet and farmers markets at this time. 

After production is complete the plants are fertilized, hand weeded and watered and prepared for next year. We usually keep a field for 3 production years.
