Fresh strawberries are ripe for the picking December through April in Central Florida. You can get that Florida farming experience by filling your own basket of berries at local pick-your-own-strawberry fields.
A local favorite you-pick farm is Oak Haven in Sorrento where you can spend hours picking berries, eating and playing. If your eyes are bigger than your fridge, clean the berries and freeze them to use later. After filling a basket, visit the country kitchen for home-style strawberry shortcake, milkshakes, strawberry wine and other snacks. To entertain the kids, there’s a zip line, hayride and playground.
