This Connecticut Mom’s 2018 Guide to Pick-Your-Own Strawberries

Strawberry season is finally in full swing here in Connecticut! Better late than never, right? 

One of my favorite things is pick-your-own. Whether it’s strawberries, blueberries or apples, there is something so special about plucking a ripe fruit straight from the vine (or bush or tree)!  

I’ve compiled a list of pick-your-own strawberry fields around Connecticut (and a few over the border in western Massachusetts).  If you know of a great pick-your-own strawberry field that is open, please let me know and I’ll be happy to add it!
