South Sound and South King County strawberry picking

Picha’s Berry Farm, Puyallup

Find it: 6502 52nd St. E. in Puyallup

When to pick strawberries: Strawberry picking season typically starts in mid-June for Picha’s Farm in Puyallup. Raspberries and blackberries can be purchased at either farm stand starting in July (but are not available for U-pick). Check for updates on the Facebook page or call 253-841-4443 for more information.

Third-generation farmers Dan and Russ Picha continue their family tradition of growing and harvesting some of the juiciest, sweetest berries around. They run a farm stand in Tacoma and one in Puyallup, both featuring summertime strawberries, blackberries and raspberries. Strawberries are the only U-pick berries, generally available for picking from mid-June to mid-July in Puyallup. Containers are available. Keep in mind that while the Puyallup stand accepts cash, checks and credit/debit cards, the Tacoma location only accepts cash and checks.

Duris Farm, Puyallup and Kent

Find it: 25175 Frager Rd. S. in Kent

When to pick strawberries and raspberries: The farm expects to have strawberries available the first week of June. U-pick is only available at their Kent location. Before you go, be sure to check the Facebook page or call 253-922-7635 for the status of U-pick.

Duris Cucumber Farm sells produce and berries at two locations, in Puyallup and Kent, with U-pick offered at the Kent location. You definitely want to stock up on cucumbers later in summer and make yourself some amazing pickles with the farm’s recipe. They also sell produce, cookbooks and other pickling necessities at their stand.

Spooner Farms, Orting

Find it: 1200 Orting Kapowsin Hwy. E. in Orting

When to pick raspberries: Spooner Farms plans to offer U-pick raspberries at their Orting location this summer, starting weekends in July.

This family farm is beloved for its berries, including strawberry plants so you can grow your own crop at home. The farm announces U-pick on its Facebook page so follow along to learn when you need to pounce on the picking. You can also find already-picked Spooner berries at farm stands in Puyallup, Buckley, Orting and Kent, and at farmers markets around the South Sound.
