Strawberry Season!

  • Picking berries at Last Resort Farm
Blink and you'll miss Vermont’s short-but-sweet strawberry season. To get you and the little ones into the fields, we’ve complied a list of pick-your-own farms particularly suited for families. When heading out for your berry expedition, here are a few pointers to bear in mind:

  • Always call or visit the farm's website ahead of time to check time. Often, farms close for a few days if ripe berries are picked out, or for weather reasons. Most list relevant info on their answering machines or online.
  • Go early to beat the heat.
  • Bring cash or check. Not all farms accept plastic.
  • While many places offer boxes for collecting berries, bringing your own baskets or buckets is a smart idea. 
  • Bring a hat, apply sunscreen generously and don’t forget your water bottle!
  • Most importantly, enjoy the unique beauty of each farm and don’t be afraid to ask questions. Farmers love what they do and usually relish an opportunity to share their knowledge.
