SHELTON, Conn. — Strawberry fields don't last forever. The last of the season for the favorite fruit will be Thursday, July 7, at Jones Family Farms in Shelton.
The fields at Valley Farm, 555 Walnut Tree Hill Road, will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for one last day of strawberry picking.
Love fresh fruit? Like to pick your own? Don't despair — even as the strawberry season draws to an end, the blueberry fields are already ripe for the picking.
Check out the video above — the Daily Voice visited the fields back on June 2, the opening day of the season.
Jones Family Farms first started planting strawberry vines at the 400-acre farm 50 years ago.
Berries are $3.99 if you pick less than eight pounds, discounted to $2.79 a pound for more than eight pounds. Or fill a berry box for $25 — take a $1 discount if you bring your own.
