We are currently drying them so you can enjoy the wonderful, in-season, taste any time. Harvest has begun at the strawberry patch in Waterford, California, and the berries are dried within 24 hours just down the road at our facility in Denair. Our natural proprietary drying method ensures the fresh ripe taste is locked into each and every strawberry slice. After tasting them you may be surprised to learn that no sweeteners or preservatives are added. Absolutely nothing! So stick your nose
