Strawberry season in Loudoun County usually begins sometime in May and lasts somewhere between four and six weeks. The weather determines when we start picking and for how long. A cold spring pushes the field opening day back, as the plants are slower to form blossoms and ultimately berries. An extremely hot spring (with days over 90 degrees) will shorten the season, as the plants shut down when exposed to several 90 degree days in a row.
Reservations are required for pick-your-own strawberries. The $26 reservation fee is for your entire family and includes the first buckets of strawberries that you pick. Each person does not need their own reservation.
