Neighboring Tangipahoa parish is known for their strawberries so it makes sense that some of us would like to go and pick our own. There are fewer places to pick strawberries than blueberries but that doesn’t mean you’re out of luck! We’ve assembled a list of local farms that do offer U Pick–usually in the months of April and May.
Some notes about picking your own strawberries:
Always, always, call ahead. Farms are unpredictable and they may sell out, rain out, or just close up shop for a family event. You always want to call before getting in your car and driving out there.
Bring sun and bug protection. It’s easy to get a sunburn without even realizing it!
Bring cash. Some farms will take a check. I don’t know of any farms that take credit cards. Be prepared so you don’t have to find an ATM in the middle of nowhere.
Strawberry Picking in Tangipahoa Parish
Open 9-4 every day until Mother’s Day. Please check their Facebook page before heading out because some days they will close if they don’t have enough ripe berries.
No specific admission charge but you will be expected to pick a certain amount based on the size of your group and charged accordingly. Usually there are $10 and $15 buckets.
