It’s Strawberry Pickin’ Time!

The warm spring means farm fields are turning red with berry deliciousness!

It’s time to pick Tennessee strawberries! Strawberry pickin’ time is underway with most strawberry farms planning to sell strawberries now through May. If you’re looking for the freshest berries, head straight to a farm.

“The strawberries are doing very well,” says Shelby Vanatta of Cabin Hill Farm in Montgomery County. “Our estimated date for opening is April 24,” she adds.

Be sure to call the berry farm you’re heading to in advance to learn picking procedures and to determine availability. Depending on the weather, the typical strawberry season lasts four to six weeks. Strawberries are one of the healthiest and most delicious fruits around — a favorite of kids and adults — packing folate and vitamin C. Studies show that eating strawberries may improve blood vessel function and lower LDL cholesterol.

NOTE: Batey Farms, located in Murfreesboro, does NOT have strawberries this year. The farm is rotating their soil with a different crop. Strawberries will return to the farm next season
