Below are a few great options to get you started, but remember it’s a highly seasonal business, so we recommend hitting them up beforehand just to double check when they’re open. And remember to slip, slop, slap!
Ti Farm’s Pick Your Own Strawberries
Ti Farm is open from Friday through Sunday once those berries are ripe for the picking (make sure to check their Facebook for when the season starts, usually around October/November). It’ll set you back $10 per tray (about 5kg worth!) and it’s $2 per head entry – including all the strawberries you’ll be snacking on while you pick! Just make sure you remember to bring cash.
263 Old West Rd, Bullsbrook
Lena Strawberry Farm
About half-an-hour out of Perth, Lena Strawberry Farm are open to pick-your-own (PYO) only on selected weekends. $15 per tray, entry is free – which of course includes lots of snacking along the way! If you want to mix it up, they sometimes offer another PYO variety – so you can half and half your box. Your best bet is to keep an eye on their Facebook to find out when they’re open this season.
1021 Thomas Rd, Anketell
Hoang Le’s Strawberries
Only a short trip northeast of Perth, Hoang Le’s rock some of the best strawberries going around – plus some great deals for any jam-makers out there. It’s still pretty early in the season so they’ve only got punnets to buy at the moment, but keen an eye on their Facebook to see when they open the farm up to the public (usually around December). Last season, picking was $10 per box, with no entry fee.
120 Trichet Rd, Wanneroo
Kien’s Strawberry Farm
This family-run business has been operating for over 20 years, so you know you’ll only be getting the freshest in the west. One of the first open this season, boxes are $15 and will keep you going for an age. They can also be bought pre-loaded – but where’s the fun in that? As always, we recommend you keep an eye on their Facebook page to double check their opening times.

Sue & Tim’s Fresh Farms
Sue & Tim’s out in Wanneroo unfortunately isn’t open for picking juuuuust yet, but one gander at their Facebook and you’ll be heading out there anyway, we reckon! As well as juicy strawberries, these guys also grow plenty of other delicious fresh goodies, so you can keep your fridge well-stocked. Last season’s picking was only $10 per box with no entry fee – make sure you bring cash.

Wanneroo Strawberry Picking Farms
For delicious strawberries, you’ve gotta hit up Wanneroo Strawberry Picking Farms. While they haven’t opened for this season just yet, we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for when we can stop by for their $15/box weekend picking sessions.
375 Badgerup Road, Wanneroo
My Strawberry Farm
We’ll be keeping a close eye on My Strawberry Farm‘s season’s start: one of the best value farms for PYO strawberries, they only charged $7 per box last year. As well as succulent strawbs, you can also often get your hands on some refreshing honey melons, rockmelons, blueberries and more from their shed. Delish!
Lot 71 Stoney Road, Gnangara
Just one look at H&N Strawberries‘ juicy red goodness will have you jumping straight in the car to get to the Gnangara farm. Open from 8AM until sold out, boxes are $15 each – but you can also swing past for one of their huge pre-picked boxes for $25 (as well as heaps more delicious local produce that often includes blueberries, oranges, garlic, ginger, avocados, mangoes and cucumber).
