We will be selling gallons. We will close the field early if we get picked out. Strawberry picking is first-come-first-serve and we can never guarantee strawberry picking.
The season should last till first of June. We will make a decision about the rest of the week after we see an updated forecast tomorrow afternoon.￼

We love Warbington Farms because they are so close!
Here are tips and pics from past seasons.
Warbington Farms: Located roughly 35 mins north of Milton, exit 17 off 400 is Warbington Farms 5555 Crow Road, Cumming, GA. It is about 5 miles off the exit. Later in the day there always seems to be traffic for about a mile off the exit so just plan for this if you go later in the day.
Check their Facebook page or call before you go to make sure they have plenty of strawberries to pick and confirm their hours. They have almost 3 acres of strawberries.
They have a fun park which includes a hayride, a sand box, petting zoo with goats; bring quarters for goat food. I also would bring a small paper cup to put the food in from the gumball type machine. They have a real sink with soap and paper towels out there to wash hands after. There are few slides and play areas and a swing area. They also have a corn box, like a sand box but with corn kernels instead, which kids can play in. There is a hay ride (it is a little bumpy but fun) and they have cows come right up to it and they feed them so you get a close view of them.
Extra suggestions: We usually wear red shirts so if we get strawberries on it, you can’t see it.
Bring bug spray sun and sunscreen.
There are real bathrooms here and a concession stand. We bring a cooler with drinks from home and they have picnic tables if they are not reserved for a party, so you could bring a lunch too. If it is a hot day, you may want to bring a cooler for your strawberries to sit in while you play in the fun park area.
Watch out for bees!
They have many fun events here so check there facebook page for it. They usually have a Strawberry Shortcake Tea party on certain dates, and other fun events.
Want a fun tool for the kids to help take the stem off? We love this!
