Would you like to pick your own strawberries? If you are ready to spend a day with some succulent, juicy berries and you are not afraid of a little bit of dirt, then it’s almost time to head on out to Hillsborough County and find out what a day of picking berries is all about. We have quite a few farms available for u-picks here in the Plant City, Dover and Riverview Area.

Shady Acres Farm is located at 3420 Gallagher Rd, Dover FL. They are now open and will stay open through mid April.Please contact them directly for hours at (813) 659-0222.
Fern Hill Family Farms is located at 10070 Fern Hill Drive in Riverview, FL. The family owns and operates a 16+ acre hydroponic farm. This type of farming does not involve soil as the plants are grown in a “medium” made up of pine bark and peat moss. The plants are then “stacked” vertically which makes picking berries a lot easier and cleaner. According to their website, their u pick fields will be open Saturdays from 9 am to 5 pm and Sundays from 11 am to 5 pm. Please check their website for more information.
