Go Pick Some Strawberries!

This is a sponsored post.

Hello June!!

Picking strawberries in the greater Waukesha County area seems to be a right of summer.  My social media feeds fill up with friends posting pictures of their finds, and then their creations of tarts, pies and jam! We have compiled a list of places that you can u-pick strawberries in Southeastern Wisconsin.  So go out and get a little dirty and enjoy the farms for a day. Please call ahead, check their websites or Facebook pages to make sure they are still picking before you head out! Many are weather and traffic dependent. Best time of day to pick strawberries is early in the morning! Get up and get out there 🙂

Please give a big thank you to our

Apple Barn Orchard and Winery Elkhorn Wisconsin Lake country Family Fun

The Apple Barn Orchard and Winery in Elkhorn is a 6 acre pick your own strawberry patch.  They provide a 4 quart picking pail which is included in the picking price.  They take orders for prepicked berries as well.  Orders need to be placed by phone at 262-728-3266.  Their season will be starting near June 15th and running thru the first week of July.  If traveling a distance, it is wise to check picking conditions.
Stop in their country store where they highlight strawberry products during the season.  Their bakery features homemade strawberry donuts, made from scratch shortcake, cookies, muffins, pastries, pies, etc.  Check out their handcrafted Strawberry Jewel fruit wine or Country Rhubarb….a refreshing flavor of the season.
They update their Facebook page daily with picking conditions during strawberry season.
