Strawberries (KPRC 2/Canva)

HOUSTON – It’s spring and the Greater Houston area’s “pick your own” berry farms are beginning to open for business.

The “pick your own” season begins with the strawberry crop, which is harvested in the spring. Blackberries are generally harvested in May and early June and the blueberry harvest season typically extends from May through July, depending on the varieties grown.

If you’re searching for ultra fresh berries, or simply just a darn good way to spend a Saturday, consider a foray into the fields to pluck your own produce.

Here are 14 small, “pick your own” farms where you can fill up a bucket or two with the season’s finest produce. We suggest contacting the farm you plan to visit to make sure it will be open and offering “pick your own” opportunities for the particular fruit or vegetable you’d like to harvest. A handful of these locations recommend/require reservations.
