Essential U-Pick FAQs

When is strawberry picking season in Florida?

Strawberry season in Florida typically runs from December through April, offering the freshest and juiciest strawberries. Our U-Pick Strawberry Adventure is available during peak season, ensuring the best berry-picking experience.

What is U-Pick?

U-Pick stands for "you-pick," where visitors are invited to our farm to pick their own strawberries directly from the field. It's a hands-on activity that allows you to select the ripest and most flavorful strawberries to take home.

Why is U-Pick a fun activity for families?

U-Pick is a fantastic way for families to connect with nature and learn about where their food comes from. It's an enjoyable, outdoor experience where kids can run freely, and adults can relax in the beauty of our farm.

Picking your own strawberries is not only fun but also educational, providing a great opportunity for children to learn about agriculture and healthy eating.

How do you prepare for a U-Pick visit?

  • Wear comfortable clothing and shoes suitable for outdoor activities.
  • Don't forget sunscreen and hats to protect from the sun.
  • Bring your own containers for picking, though we also provide containers if needed.
  • Stay hydrated! Feel free to bring water bottles to keep cool.

What are the rules for U-Pick?

To ensure everyone has a pleasant experience, we kindly ask:

  • Follow all posted signs and guidelines.
  • Respect the farm property and other visitors.
  • Check in at our welcome booth upon arrival for instructions and picking locations.

What can you do with my picked strawberries?

The possibilities are endless! Enjoy them fresh, or use them in various recipes like jams, pies, smoothies, and salads.

Picking your own strawberries guarantees the freshest flavors for all your culinary creations.
