In McHenry County, strawberries typically peak in early to mid-June and typically last only a few weeks due to popularity. We are lucky to have a wide variety of farms that offer pick-your-own strawberries, so we want to give you a few tips and tricks to make the most out of your visit.
Now let’s get out and pick! Make sure to use #visitmchenrycounty when sharing your strawberry picking adventures to be featured on our social media channels!
Stade’s Farm & Market | Stade’s Farm & Market offers nearly 20 acres of prime strawberries for your enjoyment! Picking your own strawberries at Stade’s is a great way to spend a summer day with your family and friends. During strawberry season the farm is open daily from 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM but we recommend you visit their website and/or Facebook page for the most recent picking, crop and weather conditions that may affect your u-pick experience.
Tom’s Farm Market | Tom’s Farm Market has acres and acres of fresh strawberries available for the picking! Not only can you pick your own strawberries, but you can also visit Cheryl’s Café and the Farm Market to grab fresh baked strawberry donuts, breads, and pies.
