|Niemela's first year strawberry patch and stand.|
Niemela Family Growers is a tiny family run farm out on Tapiola Rd. Their large extended family typically picks the fields in the morning, probably to sell at the stand on US41 near Chassell. U-pick is often available in the afternoons. They charge $2/quart. They will lend you the flat and quart containers for picking but you must bring your own containers to take away.

I had no problems getting a row to pick this week when I went but given how delicious and beautiful their strawberries are, as well as their growing reputation, I think it's going to get A LOT more competitive next year!
