Recently. a listener asked me about the possibility of publishing an article on local places where you can pick strawberries. You know, U-Pick-Em places.

I remember as a kid, my family would pick our own strawberries, as well as blueberries, and blackberries at various places throughout our community. I think we ate more  berries while we were picking them, versus what we carried back home


Since I really didn't know locally where to go to pick strawberries, I figured the answer would be as close as asking on social media. And I receive answers. Of course, as usual, I had to sift through the non-answer comments and vague answers like in a field in the country. Thanks, but not helpful.

Below, are 10 places that appear to be open from the responses I received. Unfortunately, there are not a lot of local choices, and there is no guarantee these places are still operating, but assuming they are open for business, check in advance of your visit to be sure, (click on the name of the company for their website or Facebook page.)

Let me know on Facebook if you know of any other local places to pick strawberries I may have missed. Happy strawberry picking!
