Now’s the time to pick your own Louisiana strawberries at farms near Baton Rouge

Berries are back. And if you’re seeking a fun, budget- and family-friendly activity, pluck the berries from the branches yourself at U-pick berry farms. We found several that are an hour’s drive or less* from Baton Rouge.

With the current strawberry crop available through May and blueberries on the way in June, now is the perfect time to plan a quick day trip.

Check out our roundup of strawberry and blueberry farms, originally published in the April 2018 issue of 225.
