If you’re anything like me, then the warmer May temperatures make you want to head out to a local farm to pick strawberries in Harrisonburg, VA!   My kids always love to help and we end up with a TON of berries to snack on and cook with!  It always brings us a ton of joy to pick strawberries in May, blueberries in the summer, and apples each fall and we love supporting local farmers!  So without further ado, I am happy to tell you about a few of my favorite places to go strawberry picking in Harrisonburg, VA and nearby!  Down below, I’ll also include farms that grow other berries and fruit and allow you to pick you own.  Be sure to call each farm before you visit to make sure they have not sold out and to confirm when their fruit is in season.  And as always, please be respectful while strawberry picking and be sure not to pick berries or other fruit that you do not plan to buy.
