Berry-picking season is almost here! These are some favorite local spots where Wichita families can enjoy picking berries and making memories. Please call ahead to make sure the crop is ripe and ready for picking! (Note: some patches require reservations).
Despite their name, in years past Blackberry Heaven has offered both blackberries and strawberries for picking. In the past, their strawberries were ready at the first of June, but you can give them a call now to see when they think the fields will be ready.
At Sargeant’s they have a little bit of everything, including blackberries, strawberries, and they are hoping for peaches and sand plums! Strawberries will likely be ready around the first of May, and blackberries probably around the beginning of June. Please call before you go to get the latest hours and make sure there are berries available!
While this patch is a little way out there, Sweet Berries and Brambles has more than 9,000 strawberry bushes and 1,000 blackberry bushes. This year, for the first time they are offering picking of currants and sand plums. The strawberries are blooming and are set to ready around the beginning of May. And be sure to check out their Annual Strawberries & Art!
