U-Pick Berry Farms in Kansas City | It’s time to stock up on in-season berries! There’s just nothing like a fresh, locally grown strawberry, blueberry or blackberry. Especially if you can pick it yourself.
Kansas City actually has several U-Pick berry farms spread across the metro area. If you are needing a good fun, family activity for summer time, berry picking checks all of my boxes for summer 2020 fun.
They are outside, they are eco-friendly and they allow you to appropriately social distance.
In the Mid-West, specifically Missouri, berries are in season for a very short amount of time. They usually only last for a few short weeks so get them while they’re in-season and at the peak of their yumminess!
There’s also the question I get often regarding how to get berries plastic free. Well, this is how. Get them locally grown, stock up, freeze and preserve, and enjoy all year.
Getting them at a local farmer’s market is an option but I’d prefer getting enough at once to make into my year supply of strawberry jam. I also like to freeze A BUNCH and dehydrate some.
With that being said, for all of you Kansas Citians, I’ve done the work for you. Here’s a list of U-Pick Berry Farms in Kansas City to fulfill your berry obsession.
