For families coming to enjoy a day on the strawberry farm, the strawberry picking challenge is a spectator event. Corporate teams will be competing for the coveted Strawberry Joe trophy. The trophy is named after the late Joe Wishnatzki, our owner Gary Wishnatzki’s father. Joe and his brother Lester joined the family farm business in 1955. Joe was passionate about strawberries and would be proud to support a charity event that promoted the importance of our farmers and pickers. The “Strawberry Joe” is a perpetual trophy that will be passed around year to year. The winner of the first annual Bright House Networks Strawberry Picking Challenge will have their team’s name featured on a plaque. The trophy will be displayed proudly for a year until the next picking challenge when a new winner is selected. We thank everyone who is helping to make this tradition grow! Here’s to a new tradition.
