Tips for PYO strawberries.
- Dress comfortably for the weather and remember you will get dirty!
- Wear a hat and/or sunscreen.
- It’s always a good idea to call ahead and inquire about picking conditions as crop availability can change daily.
- Majority of the U-Pick farms provide containers, but you may want to call ahead and check.
- If you would like to bring your own container to take fruit home, more than likely you can transfer the berries after picking.
