Fresh foods, fresh air, country scenes, and family time… spending a day at a pick-your-own farm is a nice way to get in some family fun and a bit of exercise with the reward of farm-fresh fruits and veggies to take home. Northern Virginia is home to several pick-your-own (or U-pick) farms where you can hand-select seasonal produce. We have gone strawberry-picking ourselves and it’s an enjoyable experience that shows us what a big difference freshly picked fruit brings in terms of flavor and sweetness. Late spring (early May through early June) are ripe for picking strawberries, and here are some nearby places where you can go to do just that.
