Pick Your Own Strawberries

The fun of pick your own strawberries is simple. You get to wander around beautiful farms, literally picking the food you are going to consume. It’s all about going out for a few hours with your family and enjoying the setting, the bounty of nature, and places like the beautiful North Fork of Long Island.

I also think it’s a good thing for adults and children to have a better understanding of there their food comes from. How’s it picked and processed. How it looks before it makes it to store shelves. Maybe even meet the farmers that toil in those fields and do what they do to provide for themselves and others. It’s a fantastic exercise in so many ways.

Why not support one of our amazing local farms and farmers??

Long Island Farming

Get Your Fresh Strawberries Long Island

Long Island still has a sizable number of farms, thank God, but not may of them grow strawberries, especially U Pick strawberries. This is more of a specialty, I guess you can say. Plus, Long Island weather can be tricky. You never know what you are going to get.

One thing to note, living and owning land on Long Island is expensive. So, I would say, if you pick your own strawberries on Long Island, it may be a bit more expensive than what you will get at your local grocery store. Think about $4-$7 per quart, though it varies for sure. I will tell you, though. In my experiences, the taste and quality of the strawberries is so much higher than you normally get in the grocery store. I’m not sure if this is the rule, but it seems to be.
