When the strawberry picking season ends, it doesn’t mean berry picking is done! It means it’s time to pick raspberries! While raspberry picking is not as popular as strawberry picking, that doesn’t mean that there are not local raspberry farms around the Lake Country area. It just means you need to look harder. Luckily, Lake Country Family Fun looked for you!
Raspberry Picking in the Lake Country Area
*Please call ahead, check the raspberry farm websites or Facebook pages to make sure they are still picking before you head out! Many raspberry farms are weather and traffic dependent. The best time of day to pick raspberries is early in the morning! Get up and get out there 🙂
