Strawberry picking is a classic family activity. One of the best pick-your-own crops for little hands, strawberries are abundant around Boston. It's a summer rite of passage for families to visit a farm or berry patch and go strawberry picking. And it's so much fun to come home with baskets bursting with berries to put into pies, desserts, or to just enjoy as a snack. We've rounded up some of the best spots to go strawberry picking near Boston, so get ready to get picking!

Be sure to call ahead to the farms to make sure that they have u-pick strawberries available, as some are still working to get up and running, and availability can change daily. Later in the summer, revisit our Farm and Pick-Your-Own Guide for Boston Families for more places to pick fresh produce, get a scoop of farm-fresh ice cream, and more. Our Boston Summer Fun Guide has even more ideas for keeping families busy during the summer.

Make sure to check each farm's site before heading out to see if there are requirements for reservations or changes in hours of operation..
