U-Pick Strawberry Season
This year we went and checked out South Coast Farms at the Tree of Life Nursery in San Juan Capistrano. They have 3 different fields open right now to pick strawberries. They charge $5 a pound and a $5 parking fee. They are open from 10 to 4 on select days. You can wander through the fields picking the most delicious strawberries. They also have a few chairs with umbrellas were you can sit and enjoy the view as well. They are usually open from Thursday to Sunday, but be sure to check their website to confirm they are open before you go. You can find South Coast Farms at 33201 Ortega Hwy SJC 92675
Additionally, you can also experience U-Pick Strawberries at the The Ecology Center after attending their TASTE: Eat The Rainbow experience every Saturday till May 21st. The Taste experience includes completing the GROW – EAT – MAKE stations, followed by u-pick strawberries in their fields. TASTE: Eat The Rainbow offers more than a simple opportunity to pick and enjoy fruit in the field—it invites us all to more deeply appreciate seasonality and the land that gives us life. Tickets are $20 per person(ages 2 and below are free) and doesn’t include the price of your strawberries, which is $6 per pound. You can purchase your Taste tickets here. And you can find The Ecology Center here: 32701 Alipaz Street San Juan Capistrano, CA 92675..
