How to Get Your Kids Active!

Here's to a Berry Good Season - Local Strawberries are on the menu


We wait all year for the juicy berry goodness! Picking strawberries is fun for the entire family.
Visit for a farm in your area.

Strawberry Picking Tips:

  • Go early, especially on the weekend; a large turnout can pick the field clean.
  • Most growers offer containers, at a small cost, to collect your berries. If you use your own containers, be sure that they are not too deep; you do not want to bruise your berries
  • Bring something to drink and a few snacks; you'd be surprised how you can work up a thirst and appetite! And don't forget hats and sunscreen.
  • To pick, gently hold the stem between thumb and forefinger. Carefully pinch and break the stem to release the berry without squeezing the berry itself.

Storing and Preparing

  • Remove any damaged berries as soon as possible. Trim damaged areas and use in sauces, ice creams or in baking where appearance doesn't matter.
  • Store berries in the refrigerator with hulls intact, unwashed, and lightly covered in a single layer. Use within three to six days.
  • Just before serving, gently rinse under cold running water (avoid soaking because the strawberries will absorb water and lose flavour), gently pat dry with paper towels, and hull.
  • Hull and freeze your Ontario Strawberries for a divine treat after the season!


Three easy strawberry recipes

  • Freeze your strawberries and use instead of ice cubes!
  • Fill a glass vase full of local berries. Place a bowl of freshly whipped cream or melted chocolate beside you and you will be the star of the party!
  • Blend fresh strawberries into your lemonade
  • Grill your Ontario strawberries 
  • More great recipes such as Strawberry Lemon Cream shots can be found atFoodland Ontario
  • IF you can’t make it to the fields, the berries will be available at your local roadside fruit stands and if you don’t have time to organize a Strawberry Social, look for one in your community!
