Picking strawberries in the greater Waukesha County area seems to be a right of summer. My social media feeds fill up with friends posting pictures of their finds, and then their creations of tarts, pies and jam! Lake Country has compiled a list of places near you that you can pick your own strawberries in Southeastern Wisconsin. So go out and get a little dirty and enjoy the farms for a day. Please call ahead, check the strawberry farm and strawberry patch websites or Facebook pages to make sure they are still picking before you head out! Many strawberry farms and strawberry patches are weather and traffic dependent. The best time of day to pick strawberries is early in the morning! Get up and get out there 🙂
Please give a big thank you to our
Southeast Wisconsin Strawberry Picking Farm Guide sponsor:
