Dooley Groves Citrus U-Pick Farms

U-Pick Farms in Tampa Bay: Where to pick strawberries, citrus and MORE right now!

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!

We’re seeing u-pick strawberries right now and this is the best time of year for citrus u-pick…fresh squeezed OJ anyone??

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).
