Pick Berries
Plan a family berry-picking trip! It's fun to fill a basket with ripe, juicy fruit: strawberries, cherries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, or anything else that grows where you live. And fruit that you pick yourself is sure to be extra fresh and delicious!
Step 1
Find a Berry Farm

Go to pickyourown.org and click on "Find a farm near you." Before you head out, call to be sure the fruit you want is ready.

Step 2
Prepare to Pick

You'll need a way to carry all the berries you pick, so take some boxes, bowls, or buckets with you. You'll also want a hat, sunscreen, and plenty of water—it can be sunny and hot in a berry patch.

Step 3
Head to the Berry Patch

The farmers will show you where to pick, and they'll weigh your haul when you're done. All you need to do is enjoy the picking—and the eating!
