Is There Strawberry Picking Near Me?
Yes! Our list of strawberry-picking farms provides you with all of the info we could find online, but it’s best to check with your preferred farm before you head out in case all of their strawberries have been picked. No one wants that kind of disappointment! Prices, quantity and quality will vary from farm to farm, as will hours. As this info is released we will update our guide.
Just a reminder, Springridge Farm does NOT offer strawberry picking, but they do sell ready-picked berries.
