Larriland Farm Strawberry Picking: Fun for Everyone

Larriland Farm is a pick-your-own-produce farm located just 30 minutes off of I-270 north of Gaithersburg

The farm has large fields of produce, a big pond, and a farmer’s market building.  But the big attraction is the pick-your-own fruits and vegetables starting with fresh, deliciously red strawberries in the spring.

My plan for my 3 kids was to pick strawberries together until it got too hot.  I called the phone line before arriving to make sure that the fields were open for picking.  This is highly suggested before making the drive to the farm so no one arrives disappointed.

Larriland Farm Strawberry Picking: Picking Your Own Strawberries

The only crop available for picking during our visit was strawberries.  It was FABULOUS picking on the day we arrived! 

When we arrived at the farm, there were visible signs from the road with arrows that directed us straight to the strawberry patch.  We were able to park directly in front of the patch which made it very easy for the kids.

Many preschoolers were in the field picking.  It even looked like there was a small daycare out in the field picking together. 

We were directed to a shaded cashier stand where we could get cardboard flats and then we were instructed to the field.  The whole process was very orderly. 

The worker in the field was well identified and was very precise about where you were able to pick.  She designated each group to particular rows.  This allowed the farm to have control and each group had a great selection. 

It was an excellent experience for pick-your-own-strawberries but there were not quite enough activities there to stay all day.
