Spring U-Pick Farms in Tampa Bay

By Laura Byrne

Strawberry u-pick is beginning to come to close, but that means blueberries and peaches are ready for the picking in Tampa Bay! But, that’s not all–there are a variety of other u-pick opportunities and activities like HarvestMoon Fun Farm in Masaryktown for sunflowers starting in May if you’re in the mood for flowers or Keel & Curley in Plant City if you’re looking for an al fresco lunch and a u-pick blueberry outing.

Before you go, make sure to pack your face mask because some places require you to wear a mask in designated areas, but otherwise…the farm is the perfect place to social distance under the sun! Check each farm’s social pages or websites to ensure they are open as hours and dates change with weather and whether a crop is available for u-pick.
