Pick-Your-Own Strawberries in Portsmouth This Weekend

Here's a look at where strawberries are still available in Portsmouth and throughout the state.

The following is from a press release. 

The Department of Environmental Management’s Division of Agriculture reports that although we are near the end of the strawberry season, locally-grown strawberries are still available at pick-your-own berry farms in Exeter, Johnston and Portsmouth.

DEM Director Janet Coit knows first-hand how excellent the strawberry harvest is at local Rhode Island farms.

“Last weekend, my daughter and I picked quarts of beautiful, sweet, succulent strawberries. There are oodles of them, and they are fun to pick. So my hot tip for this weekend is: Go pick local strawberries – they are out-of-this-world delicious!”

“By visiting pick-your-own berry farms you know you're getting fresh, local product, you choose the berries, and it’s fun for the whole family,” says Ken Ayars, chief of DEM’s Division of Agriculture. 

Strawberries are available for picking at the following farms (please call ahead to confirm picking times):
