2017 will mark our 40th year of plant production, we would like to express our thanks for your business.
2016 has been one of change for us as Melinda, our secretary of 14 years, has retired. Fortunately my wife, Sheila, also retired from her work in healthcare. She has taken over the responsibilities of running our office along with my daughter, Whitney, and son, Phillip. Though we will miss Melinda, we are excited to have the whole family involved in the farm.
We have had favorable weather this season, although it was very dry in the early summer. Our plants have done very well and beds are filling nicely.
We have been fortunate to have worked with Cornell University with their newly released variety, Archer (formerly called NY01-16). Archer is an early mid-season variety that ripens 5-6 days before Jewel. The fruit has excellent flavor and holds its very large size for the 2-3 week harvest season. Plants are vigorous and they have made a nice matted row. We recommend you try a few on your farm as we try to gear up production on our end. (Due to the high demand, orders will be limited to 100 plants for this season, please call our office to check availability.)
We have not grown the Rubicon or L’Amour varieties this year and it may be our last year for the older variety Surecrop. We are always trying to offer a wide selection of the best strawberries available to help you have the longest and most productive season possible. As always, we are only a phone call or email away if you have any questions or want help choosing your plants.
Again, thank you for allowing Krohne Plant Farms to serve your asparagus and strawberry plant needs.
