Nothing tastes better than a strawberry picked fresh off the vine. The season typically runs from mid-April to early June. Here are some of our favorite places within driving distance of Durham. Be sure to call or check the farms’ websites for hours and to make sure their strawberries are ready. Due to COVID-19, practice safe social distancing measures while at these farms, and some farms may not be offering u-pick options at this time, but have pre-picked and curbside pickup.
