It’s Berry Picking Time! 10+ PYO Strawberry (and more!) Farms

pick your own berries strawberries

One of the best parts of summer is fresh, locally grown berries. Taking your kids to pick your own berries can be a treasured summer tradition. Kids get an up-close look at where their food comes from, and you save money because pick your own is cheaper than buying at the market or grocery store, and you cannot beat the freshness. Play your cards right, and laboring in the sunshine with a belly full of berries can also deliver a solid nap time.

Tips for Berry Picking

Typical harvest times:

Strawberries: mid-June through mid-July

Raspberries: July through mid-August

Blueberries: mid-July through mid-August

  • Because harvest times and peak-ness are subject to change, check the website or call ahead before going.
  • Check to see what they accept for payment. Some places only accept cash or local checks and do not accept any credit or debit cards. If you never carry cash, it’s good to plan ahead to make sure you have some on hand.
  • Bring a small bucket with a handle for little ones.
  • Berry juice can be a laundry problem; clothes that you don’t care about having stains are a good bet.
  • The fields can be muddy if it has been rainy and poke-y with hay; choose shoes likely to keep the fun levels high and whining levels low.

Tips for what to do with your berries.

  • Berries freeze very well—lay berries out on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper not to touch and freeze solid. Then simply put frozen berries into freezer bags or containers.
  • Freezer jam is an easy way to preserve your berries. Pick up a box of pectin at your local grocery store and simply follow the directions on the back of the box.
  • Fresh berries are great in pies, smoothies, on pancakes, in ice cream, in yogurt, and of course, eating just as they are. Many of the websites listed below have many great recipes and more tips for storing and using your berries.

We would love your feedback! Tell us in the comments where your favorite spot to pick is, any tips you have, or your favorite berry recipe.
