Strawberries: Pick Your Own

3 Jul

Pick-your-own strawberries, $1.75/lb (Canadian dollars), at Herrle’s Country Farm Market.

Strawberry season, usually between mid-June to mid-August, is finally here. During this time, some farms allow people to pick their own strawberries. It is a fun outdoor activity for all ages, supports local farmers and leaves money in your pocket as the labour cost is your own.

The pictures above are courtesy of my friend, Michael, who went to Herrle’s pick-your-own strawberry field last week. On their website, Herrles also provides some useful tips on how to select the best strawberries, how to wash and store strawberries and some interesting historical and nutritional facts about strawberries.
