Strawberry Picking


Nothing says that spring has arrived in the Wilmington area like picking strawberries at Lewis Farms. My son and I have picked strawberries at Lewis for every spring for four years (he turns five in May), and inevitably we both come home sticky, covered in juice, and happy. This year he ate half the strawberries in our bucket before we got home.


Fields are open at their Gordon Road location for strawberry picking Monday- Saturday 8:30- 6:00 and Sundays from 1:00 – 6:00. While you’re there check out their market, which has an amazing selection of beautiful flowers, hanging baskets, honey, jams, and fresh vegetables (the asparagus today was gorgeous). Be sure to have ice cream before you go — we’re fans of both the strawberry and the chocolate (and they taste delicious mixed together!).
