RUDOLPH (WAOW) -- It's opening week at Arnold's Strawberries in Rudolph.

Many families came out to get the first pick.

"I've been to other places but these seem like the best," said costumer Norb Jazdzewski.

Five and a half acres covered with strawberries is something that Arnold's Strawberries has been proud of for many years.

After taking a seven-year break, this strawberry farm went back into business eight years ago.

"I was born and raised on this farm, I've tried other occupations but I always come back to farming," said owner Tom Arnold.

This farm prides itself on being friendly and having some of the cleanest strawberries around.

The Parks' family has been coming to Arnold's Strawberries for five years.

"We've always been picking berries, I've picked berries with my mom since I can remember, it's just a fun family outing," said customer Amy Parks.

They say they come back because of the quality.

"Excellent berries," said Parks.

Customers pay the same price as they did last year, $9 per five quart pail and are encouraged to try the berries out in the field.

Tom Arnold is ready for strawberry season and welcoming new pickers to the patch.

"It's nice to see the younger people coming out here, especially the babies," said Arnold.

Arnold says that based on weather conditions he expects the peak of his crop to be next week.
