Strawberry Picking near Chicago: U-Pick Berry Farms for Illinois Families

When kids pick their own strawberries, those berries taste even better! As summer arrives in the Midwest, families can visit local farms and do some picking, enjoying strawberries in June and blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and even gooseberries (if you know what to do with those!) in July and August. We found 11 farms within 90 minutes of Chicago where kids can get some fresh air and some fresh fruit as they enjoy a trip away from the city.
