Growing strawberries is a breeze to most people, plant em and forget em until its time to pick.  I am usually that way too.  But I just moved into a different house (ok almost a year ago) and sadly it had no strawberry patch.  SO I have to make a new one. 
The good news: the patch is made and ready.  The bad news: I have no strawberry plants, lololol.
I really would like to put in some heritage or organic plants that are hardy to zone 2 (my zone).  But I don't know where to start.  IN the past I have just dug up a few runners & plants from my aunt's house and carted them forward to my new place.  In the past.  But now (apparently) that isn't good enough for my mama.  She wants me to have some everbearing (i.e, bloom & produce continually instead of once a season) things or store bought plants that are supposed to have big cahunas - so to speak.  gar un teed.   
So I am trying to reach a compromise without much luck.
Does anyone know any heritage type strawberries that are hardy to zone 2 and fit my mom's criteria? (we only live a mile apart so it would be hard to deceive her)

To my knowledge, there are no heirloom strawberries left.  There are alpine strawberries, but they aren't red.  There are a couple of sites where you might inquire.

I grow heirloom vegetables almost exclusively, and I have everbearing strawberries.

Good luck to you.
