Ecosystem Farm, which claims to be the only u-pick strawberry farm within Atlanta city limits, has relocated to 500 Springside Drive SE.
“We are thrilled to be opening our fields again,” says owner Kirsten Simmons. “There were many moments when I questioned whether we would survive losing our old space and rebuilding on completely raw land. We’ve cleared 12-inch privet trees, removed over 100 yards of trash and brought over 1000 yards of compost into this space. Seeing berries finally growing again is so satisfying!”
Weather permitting, Ecosystem Farm will open its strawberry field the first week of May. Because parking is limited, appointments to pick are required and can be made for Saturdays, Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. A $25 fee covers the first three pounds of strawberries, and each additional pound costs $10.
Ecosystem uses no pesticides, herbicides or fungicides, and Simmons says it is just one of three organic u-pick strawberry farms in Georgia.
