Strawberry farmers in southwestern Wisconsin say they’re ready to start picking strawberries.

During an interview with WEAU-TV, Jon Jolivette, owner of Jolivette Family Farms in West Salem says the season is starting about 10 days earlier than usual. He also says lack of a spring frost is to credit for larger berries this season.

Jolivette says the strawberry season typically lasts about three weeks.
