A visit to the farm is always a fun outing, but keep in mind that it might be a little early to find plentiful big juicy strawberries right now, as peak production normally happens in late March and early April with strawberry season lasting through mid-May. The farmers note that it’s important to check the Fresh News page on the Sweet Berry Farm website for up-to-date field and crop conditions before you head out to Marble Falls. You can also visit their Facebook page for lots of helpful updates, where we read this pertaining to their spring opening weekend: “If the city of Austin comes out on Thursday [March 15, opening day], Friday’s picking might be a little slim.”
