We always recommend to either visit the farm websites or call the farm to ensure that there will be plenty of ripe berries to pick when you arrive. Doing this will also help you avoid the disappointment of finding out they have stopped picking in order for more of the fruit to ripen or because the fields are too muddy.
Some farms will have buckets or baskets available for purchase and you can use them when picking. Of course you can also bring along empty containers from home to hold the berries you pick.
Always visit the farm stand before heading out to the field. The works will help direct you to the best locations to being picking and answer any questions you may have.
Fresh berries should last between 5 to 7 days. In order to keep them fresh for as long as possible, don't keep them in a hot car for too long. In addtion, once you have them home, store them in the refrigerator and wait to wash and cut them until them right before you plan to eat them.
