Picking farm fresh strawberries has become a yearly tradition for our family. I finally made it out to Southern Belle Farms this year to pick strawberries before it gets too hot. The season starts in April in Georgia.
I have supported this wonderful local farm since we moved here in 2009. The strawberries are beautiful, sweet and delicious.
Blackberries and blueberries will arrive in a couple of weeks, so I hope to make another visit soon. Luckily, it’s only a few minutes from my house. The perks of living in a small, southern town.
How gorgeous are these strawberry fields?! So many to choose from…
When To Pick Farm Fresh Strawberries In The South
It’s late into their strawberry season and it’s getting hot in Georgia, but the berries are still beautiful. Strawberry season starts in April here and goes until the end of July. Prime picking time for strawberries is May and June.
I am happy with my selection today. These are some big, ripe beauties! Now time to head home to enjoy all the fresh berries. My daughter will devour these fast, so I need to get busy cooking with them before they all disappear!
I plan to make freezer jam and freeze some of these delicious farm-fresh berries for my smoothies. I have some helpful tips on freezing fresh berries for your favorite shakes and recipes. I may also have to make a fresh strawberry pie for dessert.
