Strawberry season is here

MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - Folks in Moultrie will be able to enjoy fresh strawberries a little bit longer this year.

Farmers at Ochlocknee Ridge Farms said the season is normally 12 weeks.

This year they expect it to be about 20 weeks long.

Farmer Trey Hart said they have had a good crop so far this year because of the mild winter conditions." It's been a good year so far, we had that wet weather last week we had to do a little cleaning up, so far it's been a successful year so far."

Hart said  they send a lot of their strawberries to surrounding school districts.

If you would like to pick strawberries before the season ends in may, the farm is open from 8 am to 7 pm, Monday through Saturday.

They are also open from 2 pm to 6pm on Sunday.

Ochlocknee Ridge Farms is located off Rossman Dairy Road.
