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.
