Mmmm… My favorite season is upon us…. Strawberry Pickin’ Season! Words can’t describe a fresh picked strawberry! I took my crew out picking strawberries today at Moon Farms. We chose this farm because they have a lower price and because they don’t charge per person, and as a family of 7, we save where we can.
We had a blast picking at Moon Farms! I’m not sure what we are going to do with all of the strawberries yet. I’m sure we will make some strawberry jam in the bread machine, possibly a strawberry shortcake, and most definitely we’ll eat them like crazy! If you live in my area, here are the local strawberry patches that I am aware of. Let me know if you know any others not listed or if you have any feedback on these patches.
Moon Farms: Moon Farms is open Monday-Saturday from 9-6 and Sundays from 2-6. One thing that I particularly love about Moon Farms is that they have fresh homemade strawberry ice cream available to buy! You haven’t lived until you’ve tried their fresh strawberry ice cream! Pick your own berries in a gallon bucket for $13 or pre-picked for $16. Buckets are $1. **Cash and Check only**
Washington Farms: It’s always best to call or check their website before you head out to Washington Farms. Sometimes they get slammed with visitors and will be picked out for the day. Washington Farms is open from 8am-6pm Monday-Saturday as long as they have ripe berries. They are closed Sunday. Prices are $14 for a gallon of pick your own berries or $17 for pre-picked. Bucket price is $1.50. NEW THIS SPRING: There is a $1 per person (including children) Strawberry Field Admission fee to enter the fields to pick your own strawberries. You can also purchase a Season Pass for Spring 2021 Strawberry Picking for $4.95 per person and use all season long!
Pharr Farms: I’ve only recently heard about this farm, thanks to a reader’s tip, and haven’t been out here yet. I’d love feedback from you guys if you go! Their U-pick strawberries are $15 a gallon and this includes a bucket. They will also have pre-picked berries for $17 a gallon and this also includes a bucket. Check their facebook page for picking times/availability. Located in Winder, GA.
