MARYLAND HEIGHTS, MO (KPLR) – Local strawberry growers are seeing their strawberry patches bloom, but if you want the real thing, you’ll have to wait.
Thies family farm in Maryland Heights says their crop is taking a little longer this season, and it’s because of the long winter the St. Louis region had.
It’s been a long time since Thies family farm has seen their strawberry crop come in this late, and strawberry lovers have taken notice. Thies family farm has received numerous calls with people wanting to know when they'll be ready.
They’re hoping to have a patch ready for families to pick from around May 25th, but it might be around the 1st of June before they will have enough for the public to pick. The manager says he wants to make sure that there is enough for everybody.
