Spring in the Lowcountry is the time for picking fresh strawberries right off the plants in the fields of several farms open to the public.

This painting of a smiling young girl with hands full of newly picked strawberries buried deep in her lap for safekeeping, is a reminder of happy times spent close to nature.

What a cute child. I like the feeling of sunshine in the painting.

My family will be visiting Chas soon. Where can my kids and I pick strawberries in Charleston?

Thanks for checking out the blog. Glad you liked the painting and will be coming to Charleston for a visit.

You asked where your family can pick strawberries during your visit to Charleston.

In the Lowcountry area (which includes Charleston), there are several u-pick farms that plant strawberries.

Boone Hall Farms in Mt. Pleasant is one and Patriot Farms near McClellanville, SC is another.

Hope you have a great trip and enjoy your strawberries!
