2021 U-Pick Strawberry Season

Many families look forward to Florida’s U-Pick Strawberry season. In the Tampa Bay area you will find many U-Pick Strawberry Farms where your family can pick conventional and organic strawberries. Children and adults of all all ages love this special time.

Whether you decide to make strawberry jam, strawberry shortcake, strawberry smoothie or any other strawberry concoction, your family will surely be pleased.

Below you will find a list of farms that offer U-Pick Strawberries. Some farms offer a huge field where you can pick the strawberries, hydroponically grown u-pick areas or it is simply a market that sells strawberries, products or strawberry desserts.

Strawberry U-Pick Tips:

  • ALWAYS call ahead OR check the farm’s Facebook page for updates.
  • Weather and how many strawberries have been picked will affect the hours or availability of U-Pick.
  • Bring your own basket or bags. Avoid deep containers as the strawberries tend to bruise easily.
  • It’s Florida so dress accordingly. Closed toes shoes are recommended.
  • Bring cash or check to see if they accept credit cards. Not all farms accept card payments.
  • Have fun and make something yummy with those amazing strawberries!


NOTE: We will update this post as more U-Pick locations open for strawberry season. Make sure to check back with us. Follow us on Facebook to stay updated.


Before you experience U-pick strawberries, make sure to get some famous strawberry shakes and shortcakes.
