Our Fresh Berry Fundraiser

 

 

 

Support the community with our delicious berries!

Stock up on your favorite locally-sourced strawberries! Never picked early, these berries are harvested at the peak of ripeness then washed and sliced before being packaged in a 5 gallon pail. 

They’re great for jams or freezer jams, strawberry shortcakes or as an ice cream topping!

Our Fresh Berry Fundraiser is a great way to support your community. Every dollar we make is reinvested into the people and organizations of West Salem. In fact, the entire fundraiser is designed with community in mind; from our farmers at Townsend Farms to our teachers at SKPS and everywhere in between.

Questions and Answers

Q: Are these whole strawberries like what I can get from the store? 

A: Our strawberry pails are a unique product that you can’t find at stores or farmers markets. The berries are cleaned and sliced, so no tops, and stored in their own natural juices. These strawberries are hard to eat with your fingers but work great as an ingredient in your favorite treat!

 

Q: How are they packaged?

A: Our berries come packaged in a 28 lb plastic pail with a lid- like a 5 gallon bucket. 

Q: Is there sugar added?

A: Never! These naturally sweet strawberries have no additives. 

Q: Have these strawberries been frozen? 

A: No, our strawberries come straight from the fields before being processed and delivered straight to you. 

Q: How do I store my strawberries? 

A: Due to the nature of sliced strawberries, they spoil quickly if you don’t store them properly. Once you get them home, you should immediately refrigerate or freeze them until you’re ready to use them. Many of our customers pour them into multiple freezer bags so they can enjoy them all year! 

Q: How do I get my strawberries after I order them?

A: We’ll have multiple distribution sites in Salem, as well as sites in Woodburn, Beaverton, Milwaukie and Lincoln City. As we get closer to harvest time, you’ll receive an email or postcard with the site you chose on your order as well as the date and time of pickup. Historically, it has been on a Thursday in late June.
