There are some fun activities that are common, and others you don’t often hear about. But just because an activity is less common doesn’t make it any less exciting, and strawberry picking falls underneath that category. It’s not always easy to find a good place to do it, but strawberry groves are out there and many of them offer visitors the opportunity to pick strawberries to their heart’s desire. Here’s why it’s a fun activity you should definitely try out.

You’ll Pick the Best Ones

We all know how annoying it is when we bring strawberries home from the supermarket only to learn that half of them aren’t good. But when you go strawberry picking, you don’t have to worry about getting “bad” strawberries because you’re only picking ones that you like!

It’ll Make Eating an Adventure

Eating food is so much more than just ensuring our own survival. It’s a historical thing that connects us all. But our modern society makes it so easy for us to access food, making our experience much different than that of our ancestors. By picking strawberries ourselves, you’ll connect yourself more to the way that our great-great-great-grandparents ate food, roaming in the fields and harvesting crops.
