It is that time of year for strawberry picking!

Among those excited for strawberry picking are the Employee's at Walter's Fruit Ranch in Mead. They announced Saturday it is their first day of strawberry picking.

Morgan Morrell, co-owner of Walter’s Fruit Ranch, said strawberry season typically starts in mid-June.

Morrell said there is currently a detour to get to their farm. The heavy snowfall from this past winter washed out part of the main road.

Information on the detour is described on their Facebook.

Their strawberries are distributed on a first come first serve basis and will continue to be sold as they become ripe throughout the remainder of berry season.
