The strawberry season has started at Bauer Ehl! They have been around since 1995 and combine innovation with traditional cultivation methods to grow their produce.

Upon leaving the motorway turn right in the direction of Borg and after about 2km you will see the strawberry fields on your right. You can bring your own containers or buy them there for a small fee.
