There is nothing like a strawberry still warm from the sun topped with some whipped cream eaten in an outdoor setting. Kids learn about nature as they skip between the rows, careful not to damage plants (as parents, you would have primed them) and of course there are going to arguments as to who picked the biggest strawberry of the day. Recent rains have meant reduced strawberry crops but there are loads of blueberries and blackberries.
Open Mon to Sat 10 am to 6 pm and Sunday 10 am to 2 pm. March 1st to October 31st. You can pick your own strawberries as well as choose from other fresh produce at the farm, all grown for local markets.
Distance: 24.9 miles – 27 minutes via I-45 N
Strawberry picking takes place from 9 am to 5 pm – that means if you come at 5 you at least have an hour to pick before they close. They supply the buckets for strawberries at $1 (they are reusable) and the cost of the berries is $2.35 per pound. There are safety rules in place, which should be impressed upon children before they go out picking.
Times: Open 9 am to 6 pm every day of the week.
