It’s almost strawberry season! In Richmond, we are lucky to have several farms from which to choose for berry picking fun! Whether you decide to stay close to RVA or drive an hour or two, there is much fun to be had on these farms.
There’s nothing quite like picking your own fruit off the vine.
Being able to choose it, see where it’s grown and choose your own is a novel experience that all ages enjoy. There are several berry picking options to check out this spring; several around Richmond and others a bit farther down the road.
