U-pick farms in Tampa Bay are opening their fields once again for a fun and unique day out on the farm with the kids!
While strawberry u-pick season has come to a close, we’re seeing tons of u-pick blueberries right now and even some u-pick peaches popping up on the calendar.
Before you go, check each farm’s social pages or websites to ensure they are open as hours and dates change with weather and whether a crop is available for u-pick.
We suggest bringing some sunscreen, bug spray and closed toed shoes when out on the farm. Also make sure to pack plenty of water for everyone in your group. It can get hot in the fields (gotta love winter in Florida).
