Strawberry picking season in New Jersey is estimated to arrive this year in mid-late May. Grab your baskets and 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 was quite mild so be sure to call ahead for opening and picking times before you head out in case crops came in earlier than expected!
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.
