Good to know before you go strawberry picking:

• Hours and availability will vary depending on the weather and traffic in the fields, so be sure to check the farm's website or call ahead for the schedule the morning you plan on going.
• When looking at the farm’s website, check if the have other activities that kids will enjoy in addition to picking.
• Bring your own baskets or containers (or check websites to see if these are available on site.)
• Be aware that sometimes farms get “picked out” and crops might be ready before or after the times listed on the website or their Facebook pages.
• Wear comfortable clothes that you don't mind getting dirty and footwear that is comfortable for walking. Wear sunscreen and hats. Bring water.
• Bring hand-wipes. Little hands and fingers will get dirty.
• If you don’t have time to pick your own berries, or if the kids would rather visit with farm animals or play at the playground, you can still go home with sweet, strawberries, as most locations will also sell their berries at their farm stands.
• Bring your camera to capture all the memories.
