Discover & Taste the Sweetness of Spring at the Carlsbad Strawberry Company

Visiting the Carlsbad Strawberry Company has become a tradition in our family. We really enjoy visiting the fields and filling up our buckets with sweet, red berries. Now that we are growing strawberries in our raised garden bed at home, I have an even greater appreciation for the time and effort it takes to grow these beautiful strawberries. This year's visit was a little windy and overcast which was perfect for berry picking. We spent about an hour wandering through the rows of berries and teaching Parker the proper way select and pick the berries (no long stems). The field was more crowded than I remember it being in years past but there were plenty of strawberries to pick and space for everyone to spread out. If you have never visited the strawberry fields, check out my mom tips below. Happy Spring! 

Carlsbad Strawberry Company

Mom tips: 
-Cost $20 for a large bucket and 2 admission tickets.
-Don't forget to apply sunblock and wear a hat. 
-Backpacks, bags, purses are NOT allowed in the fields. 
-Wear close-toed shoes or galoshes.
-The fields can be muddy. Pack an extra pair of shoes to change into after you are done picking.
