Strawberries, a spring favorite, kick off the season each year for the family-owned Kern Family Orchard in Montgomery County.

The farm’s strawberry season typically runs from May to early June for preorder or U-pick, but it depends on Mother Nature. Berries grow on elevated mounds wrapped in a black plastic soil barrier, which makes them cleaner and easier to pick than traditional strawberry patches. The Kern family also grows blueberries and peaches, which become available later in the season.

The farm is located 4 miles south of Raymond on Route 127. Call (217) 820-1266 or follow Kern Family Orchard on Facebook to check availability.
