6 Best Strawberry Picking Spots on Long Island

Summer is here, and one thing Long Islanders can count on is strawberry picking. The kids will love strolling about; some farms even have animals to pet. There are even spots that serve ice cream!

There’s no shortage of spots to go strawberry picking on Long Island. Not only is strawberry picking a fun activity for a family day out, it also gives kids a closer look at where their fruit comes from.

When you’re done picking strawberries, get creative with how you use them: add them to a refreshing ice cream sundae, bake them into pastries, or even use them to liven up a summer salad.

Tip: Strawberry season usually starts in late May and early June. However, we had an early Cherry Blossom season, which means Mother Nature is in control! Most farms have updates on their sites announcing that the strawberries are ready to be picked. We recommend checking the website, especially in early June, for any updates on picking dates as well as general added information.

Strawberry picking is one of the best ways to welcome the warm season and score some tasty berries. Check out our favorite spots to pick strawberries on Long Island!
