There are few things I love more than freshly picked strawberries. And judging from the Bug sneaking them as I was assembling a Strawberry Rhubarb crisp yesterday afternoon (which subsequently became a Strawberry Rhubard Peach crisp because her little hand couldn’t stay out the berries!), she’s a strawberry fanatic, too.

Here are a few places that you and your family can get your pick-your-own fresh berries fix.

Larriland Farm
