The Strawberry Sift is the pre-judging of the Famous Poteet Strawberries. On the Saturday before the annual Poteet Strawberry Festival, local Atascosa County Strawberry Growers hand select the very best of their crop and bring to the Strawberry Festival Grounds to be pre-judged for this year’s competition.
