Strawberry Picking in Kansas City

2017 Edition



Strawberry picking season may come early this year! May means strawberries in the Kansas City region. With our famously unpredictable weather, the definite start date varies from year to year, but you’re sure to enjoy a trip to one of these local patches. Always call ahead or watch Facebook for picking announcements to enjoy the best berries of the season as hours may fluctuate based on picking from previous days.

Strawberry Picking Tips

  • Strawberry plants are low to the ground—the perfect height for toddlers and preschoolers! Be prepared for stooping and bending over.

  • Dress for a mess! The u-pick patches are as "tidy" as a farm could possibly be, but let's face it, you are bent over in the dirt picking juicy berries. Dress in comfortable tennis shoes and jeans/shirts meant for working in a garden.

  • Bring wipes for messy fingers.

  • Be prepared for photo ops! Strawberry smiles make super cute scrapbook photos.

  • Bring bottled water (and perhaps snacks, too, depending on your lunch plans).

  • Plan to spend an hour at least.

  • Teach your children that "redder is better" when it comes to strawberries. Leave the green behind; they are still growing!

  • Bring a cooler and ice to keep berries fresh on the ride home. You may want to bring a few plastic containers that fit properly in your cooler for the berries.
