Strawberry Picking in Connecticut

posted by yazmin

June is strawberry picking month in Connecticut. I love bringing my little ones to pick-your-own (PYO) strawberry farms. The plants are low to the ground and the fruit is easy to pull off. They usually end up with more strawberries on their faces and clothes than in the basket but it’s all for a good time..

Mommy Tip: Dress little ones in old or dark colored clothes. Your washing machine will thank you!

Thankfully there are a bunch of farms where you can pick-your-own strawberries throughout the state. Act fast because strawberry season only last for a few weeks. It’s also a good idea to call ahead to check on the farm conditions before you go.
