A 4 year old, a six year old and myself picked 20 lbs in half an hour today at Wallers Family farm in Durham today. First day open, the plants were bursting and the berries were sweet as can be.

We went to Oakley's Farm in Chapel Hill. My three kids (age 10, age 7, and age 4) and I only managed to pick 7 1/2 pounds, though. It was a lot of fun! Can't wait until blueberries come in season!

Default How much are you paying $/lb for U pick strawberries

I've never picked my own strawberries but was thinking of going to Vollmer farm today to get some. Was just curious what people are paying $ per pound for u-pick strawberries. Thanks!

Usually $1-$1.50, depending on the berry patch.

blech they can keep their bland California strawberries. They can't begin to compare to our amazing NC berries.

I'm heading over to DJ's today to get a flat. Plan on making ice cream, sorbet, and muffins this afternoon
