Where to pick your own strawberries on Long Island

Farmers, fields and berries aplenty can signal only one thing: strawberry season. This summer, the seasonal treats will be prime for picking in mid- to late June, farmers say. Long Island businesses will celebrate with U-pick events and festivals. Be advised: If you’re going to select your own strawberries, call ahead to avoid slim pickings.
