Springtime means a ripe crop of strawberries are ready for harvest in Texas! If you’re looking for a good daytrip for some delicious fun, try taking a trip to Marble Falls to pick your own strawberries! There is a strawberry farm about an hour away from Austin called Sweet Berry Farm that allows strawberry lovers to harvest from March to May. The berries are sold by the pound and you pay for what you pick! Sweet Berry Farm also sells homeade strawberry ice cream, popsicles, and lemonade- a perfect way to end the day.
If you wind up with more berries than you can eat, you can bust out your creative cooking talents and use your berries for muffins, tarts, cakes, and even strawberry daiquiris.
