Shortened strawberry season finishing up

Too much rain in May and the COVID-19 health crisis dampened the season for strawberry growers in Door County.  Terry Sorenson of Soren’s Valhalla Orchards in southern Door County says the overall crop in the state was relatively light in yield with incredibly high demand.  He says that presented a challenge to meet when it came to pick-your-own customers.



Sorenson says his strawberry fields were negatively impacted by heavy rains in May.  The flatland patches yielded only about 15 percent of the strawberries compared to raised-bed patches that were for pick-your-own customers.  Sorenson added that Monday was the last day of selling strawberries as sweet cherries will start up this coming weekend.
