Best Place for Picking Strawberries
It is time for my annual strawberry picking outing. I pick enough for canning jams and sauces so I am looking for a place that has a lot of good quality strawberries. I hope for someplace not too crazy with kids and groups. West or south of Boston is preferable. Any suggestions? TIA
I really like Sunshine Farm in Sherborn. It's not a huge place, and it's completely no frills (a kid behind a rickety old stand handing out containers, and that's about it), but I've gotten tons of strawberries each of the past two years and plan on going again this year.
Sorry, I forgot to post a link to Sunshine Farm.

I bought pre-picked strawberries from Verrill last week and they were excellent. They have their strawberry festival coming up on the 20th, so I'd make sure to hit them before that, or avoid that Saturday, if you don't want the crowds.
I like Verill a lot.
Well, except for my own tiny little alpine strawberries, but no matter how many plants I have, I never get more than a tiny handful of miniature berries at a time.
Seriously, Verill is fun, and they have a very nice farmstand to get picnic fixin's. Make a day of it.
