Can anybody recommend good places to go strawberry picking outside of Chicago?

    Lots of places in the area are listed here:
    www.pickyourown.org/ILchicago.htm
    and here:
    www.urbanext.uiuc.edu/strawberries/fa...

    I've done it at Thomson Farm in Bristol WI, which is listed in the second link, but I think they all basically work the same.

    The season is in late May and early June.

      Can anyone also recommend Organic U-pick strawberry farms less than 2 hours from Chicago? Seems nearly impossible to find in my search so far.
