It's Pick-Your-Own Strawberry Time in New Jersey!

Strawberry picking season in New Jersey is estimated to arrive this year in late May, and, after several long, cold months, it’s a great way to get the whole family outside. Head to these pick-your-own (PYO) farms near you for delicious, fresh berries, and don’t forget: This winter’s freezing temperatures (you remember those, right?) are affecting Jersey’s strawberry crops, so many farms have not yet finalized pricing.

Wondering what to do with all those fresh strawberries? We've got lots of ideas on our Strawberries Pinterest Board. And remember, fresh-picked berries won't last as long as store-bought ones, so plan to eat them within a few days of being picked.
