About Gross Farms
At Gross Farms in Sanford, NC, they allow you to pick your own strawberries (or they have some already picked for those of you who just want to grab and go). It cost $1.35 per pound of strawberries. Not bad considering the Food Lion (grocery store) charges $3.99 for a 2 pound tub. That's a huge savings and you get a lot more memories picking them yourself.
Their business hours are Monday - Saturday 7:30am - 6:00pm and Sunday 1:00pm - 5:00pm. Below is a link to their website where all the information can be found.
