Fruit Farms

Here is a list of Fruit Farms that I generated last June (07) when I was looking for Strawberry Picking. I think the numbers, hours, etc have remained the same - but double check before heading out! All the info was pulled directly from the Farms' websites, so can't personally vouch for the drive times given.

Now, I realize we have months to go before we can enjoy the sun-ripened fruit, but we need something to get us through these last weeks of winter. :) So, get those tastebuds salivating now - I've never had better strawberries!
