Planning Your Visit

Before heading out to Harvold Berry Farm, it’s crucial to check for the latest updates on picking times and availability. The farm regularly updates their Facebook page with all the necessary information. Remember, the strawberry season generally reaches its peak in mid-June, so start checking their website by late May to plan your trip perfectly.

Amenities and Payments

Harvold Berry Farm is well-equipped to make your visit comfortable and convenient. They provide carriers and cardboard boxes for your picked fruits. Although there’s a minimum credit card charge of $5.00, they accept credit cards, debit cards, and cash (sorry, no personal checks). For your convenience, the farm also offers porta-potties and a hand wash station.

Although the farm provides porta potties, we always prefer to bring our own OXO portable potty (on any outing) in the trunk for the kids. We find it to be cleaner and more versatile based on our experiences.

Our Family Experience

Having visited Harvold Berry Farm for two consecutive years, our family’s experience has been nothing short of wonderful. The farm offers spacious parking and reasonable prices that are a good deal compared to what you’d pay at a store. Picking berries directly from the plant provides a fun learning opportunity for kids and an enjoyable activity for adults. The strawberries at Harvold are notably sweeter than those bought from stores, likely due to their freshness and the specific varieties grown at the farm.

It’s an excellent way to teach children about where their food comes from while enjoying the scenic beauty of Carnation, Washington.
