Note: Due to concerns about COVID-19, many farms have rules and restrictions in place about buying advance tickets, and due to the weather, many have limited strawberry crops. Please call your local favorite farm before heading out.
Pick-your-own strawberry season is here! Grab your baskets and get the whole family outside. Head to these pick-your-own (PYO) farms near you for delicious, fresh berries, but be sure to call ahead for specific opening and picking times, plus COVID-19 restrictions before you head out.

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.
