U-Pick

Young girl picks Florida strawberries from the fieldThere are some strawberry u-pick farms in Florida open during the entire season (December – April). However, commercial farms do not open their fields to u-pickers until the end of the season, which is usually in April (depending on the weather).

No Farms Currently Open for U-Pick

Please check back here or your newspaper for commercial farmers to open their fields.

Helpful U-Pick Tips:

  • Dress comfortably. Wear loose fitting clothing.
  • Wear a hat or cap and bring sunscreen.
  • Bring your own containers.
  • If you plan to spend the day, take ice to keep berries cool.
  • Select only firm ripe berries.
  • Be careful not to remove the tops of the berries.
  • Make an effort to pick every ripe berry on each plant rather than jumping from plant to plant and row to row.

The growers will appreciate your consideration and you will reduce the amount of strawberries that are left sitting in the field.
