Strawberry season is so short, you’ve got to get them while you can — see the list of u-pick strawberry farms below. And, if you pick more than you can enjoy fresh, here’s a great primer on how to freeze strawberries, from local food blogger Emma Frisch.
For your berry-picking pleasure, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County and our South Central NY Ag Team are pleased to provide an online list of u-pick strawberry farms in Tompkins, Cortland, Tioga, Schuyler and Southern Cayuga Counties, with hours and contact information, so you can call ahead to confirm crop availability: http://ccetompkins.org/agriculture/buy-local/u-pick-strawberry-farms.
