Strawberry Picking at Warbington Farms
It’s strawberry season & I must admit I’m a little giddy about it!! I LOVE fresh berries & in Forsyth County, we’re super lucky to have a strawberry farm in Cumming!
Warbington Farms is located just up GA 400, off Browns Bridge Road. It’s relatively easy to get to from most parts of the county (but note – there’s a Crow ROAD and a Crow DRIVE and every visit I manage to punch in the wrong one – ha)!
5555 Crow Road
Cumming, GA 30041
Warbington Farms Online | Warbington Farms on Facebook
Tues – Friday, 10am to 6pm
Saturday, 10am to 7pm
Sunday, 1pm to 6pm
On the weekends, let the kids take advantage of some Farm Fun including hay rides, inflatable slide & petting zoo (small fees).
Warbington Farms is a U-Pick farm at just $12/ gallon. If you’re on a time crunch or just don’t feel like picking your own, you can also purchase previously picked strawberries (when available) at the same price. And sometimes even cheaper – I snagged some for $11/ gallon because they had been picked the previous day.
After you pick (or purchase) all those strawberries you might need some recipes – I did. So check out my “Strawberry Season Board on Pinterest” for some ideas!
1. It’s never a bad idea to call ahead or check their Facebook page to make sure they still have plenty to u-pick … especially if you’re driving from a big distance.
2. Keep an eye out for deals – I’ve seen Warbington featured on SweetJack & Groupon in the past (of course we’ll keep you updated if we see those deals too)!
3. Check out their other farm produce while you’re there – I snagged some farm-raised eggs for a great price!
4. And finally, mark your calendar for their May 12th Strawberry Festival: Vendors, Great Food, Farm Fun & of course … strawberries!
Took my son there last Sunday, we had so much fun. The strawberries are some of the sweetest I have ever tasted
Happy to hear that Neil! Definitely the sweetest I’ve had too!
Did not have a good experience there today. The owner has deployed “strawberry police” to keep all the people picking the same rows over and over again. They were not at all pleasant to us, and only opened up one new row (out of dozens and dozens that were totally empty of people) once we showed them that there were no berries in the rows that were being picked. The owner was not even slightly interested in the rude behavior of his employees. We will not be coming back.
Did not have a good experience here. There were absolutely no strawberries on the row they told me to pick on. I asked for a different row that actually had ripe strawberries on them. They let me, but I could tell the owner was NOT happy about it. I will not be going back; the service was not friendly or inviting by the owner. Also, I was extremely disappointed to find out (after I had paid) they sprayed pesticides on the fruit.
