2. Patterson’s NEW Drive-Thru
Even though we can’t pick our own strawberries, for now, we still have them available at our market! We have created a drive-thru for strawberry pick up to ensure that you can still get your strawberry fix. It is important when you use the drive-thru to remain in your vehicle while you wait. Do not approach the barnyard fences or allow your animals to leave the car. By following the red arrows on the map, you can safely and quickly pick up your strawberries to enjoy! Make sure to check our availability online before heading to the farm.
If you are still confused when looking at the map, check out our virtual drive-thru simulation video here.

6. Check out our beautiful flowers!
One perk of strawberry season is that our flowers bloom at the same time!

We have fern hanging baskets and a variety of bedding plants available for purchase to take home and brighten up your yard or garden.

7. Satellite Stands
If our main location in Rowan County is a little out of the way for you, don’t worry. Our satellite stands are now open! The berries are picked fresh in the morning and delivered directly to the stands every morning. The stands open at 9 a.m. each day and remain open until they sell out. If a stand is already closed when you arrive, this means that they have sold out and closed for the day. We currently have two open satellite locations; one in Salisbury, and one in Concord.
