Maybe it’s time to line the pantry with some fresh strawberries!
Spring is coming up, which is peak strawberry-pickin’ time around Perth.
So forget about Coles or Woolies, jump in the car and grab some of your own, fresh off the farm.
Below are a few great options to get you started, we recommend hitting them up beforehand just to double check when they’re open, if there’s entry fees etc.
And make sure you pack plenty of water/sunscreen.
Ti Farm’s Pick Your Own Strawberries
Ti Farm’s strawberries are finally ripe for picking, and they’ve just opened up on weekends from 9am-5pm.
It’ll set you back $10 per tray (about 5kg worth!) and it’s $2 per head entry – all you can pick strawbs on your away around ;).
Make sure you bring cash!
