5+ Tips for Picking Your Own Strawberries and Other Berries
Tip #1: It can get really hot in a berry patch. Pick in the early morning or early evening if possible and be sure to wear sunscreen and a hat if you are picking in the heat of the day. Don’t forget to bring water!
Tip #2: Be sure the kids use the bathroom before you leave the house.
Tip #3: Wear appropriate shoes and clothing. It’s a dirty job and there will likely be fire ant hills and other insects. Rain boots are an excellent choice. Also, bring bags that can get dirty, like plastic bags, for dirty shoes.
Tip #4: Be respectful of the farm. Coach your kids on good behavior such as not stepping on plants and only picking what you plan to keep. Some farms may also ask that you not eat strawberries while picking.
Tip #5: Be cautious of pesticides, and be sure to wash your berries when you get home before eating them.
Bonus Tip #1: Call ahead to be sure that the patch is still offering pick-your-own strawberries or blueberries. The pick-your-own berry season is typically only at the peak of the season and can change depending on demand and the crop.
Bonus Tip #2: Bring gallon baskets. Most patches ask that you only use approved gallon baskets or buckets. Usually you can reuse baskets from year to year from local patches. Plan on spending a little extra money on purchasing approved baskets if you don’t already own some.
