Berry Nice

Pick your own strawberries at one of the Valley’s many fruit farms



In this month’s Small Bites department, we gave you a crash course in the art of strawberry picking. But the region’s strawberry fields won’t be ripe forever — you’ll have only a few weeks in June to nab the freshest, juiciest fruit in this year’s crop. To aid you in your quest for the perfect berry, we’ve created a list of Valley farms that offer pick-your-own strawberries here. Be sure to call ahead, as the season’s start date varies from year to year depending on the weather.
