Greater Madison Area Guide to Berry Farms | Pick Your Own Berries

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:

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.

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 (such as Lapacek’s or Eplegaarden) 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. If there is specific information I thought would be helpful about a farm, I included it under the “Other” section – such as prices, other activities, season schedule, etc.

Here are some of the Madison-area farms that offer U-Pick berries. I’m sure there are others that I’ve missed, and since I haven’t been to most of these myself, I’d love to hear your thoughts/opinions about them in the comments. Also, if you have any special jam or jelly recipes you’d be willing to share, I’m going to try my hand at making some this year.

Wishing you lots of strawberries and a wonderful summer!

  1. Lapacek’s Orchard does not have strawberries. Their neighbors Creek Bed Country Farmacy grow strawberries and offer both u-pick and pre-picked.

  2. Kirschbaum’s is my favorite for strawberry picking. Their correct address is N5802 US-151, Beaver Dam, WI 53916. They are about 15min north of Sun Prairie on Hwy 151. Worth the short drive. They usually have fresh peas and fireworks, too.
