2021-2022 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 ages love this special time.

Whether you decide to attend a local event, 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.
