Strawberries, Raspberries & Farms, Oh MY!
For berries, and other u-pick produce, here is what you need to know before grabbing your pails and heading out:
Mid to Late June
First of all, strawberries will probably be available at most places around Father’s Day weekend (mid to late June). Before heading anywhere, definitely call and make sure of the availability for “U-Pick”. A lot depends on the weather, so they could pop out earlier. I’ve included phone numbers and websites (if available) below so you can call around.
U-Pick & Pre-Picked Berries
Secondly, many places offer both U-Pick and Pre-Picked berries. Some only grow strawberries, some only grow raspberries, and a few do both. I’ve also included whether or not places offer other U-Pick options beyond strawberries and raspberries in case you’re interested in trying apple picking this fall.
Finally, some farms offer other family friendly activities – animals, hayrides, picnic areas, etc – so it’s worth checking out their websites if you are interested in packing a lunch or making a day out of your trip.
Wishing you lots of strawberries and a wonderful summer!
