SHARON (WBZNewsRadio) - Summer is now underway and so is strawberry picking season at Ward's Berry Farm in Sharon.

"My daughter loves berries, she'll eat them by the handful." Carly from Attleboro told WBZ's Kim Tunnicliffe. "Fresh is best, that's how I feel about it."

Carly was just one of the many parents who are taking advantage of peak strawberry season in New England.

Victoria Pike, the farm's operations manager said it's good family fun and education as well.

"A lot of people don't get to connect from where their food comes from so it's a good opportunity to show kids and I think it makes food fun." She said.

It isn't just strawberries bursting off the vines at Ward's Berry Farm, but raspberries too.

"We have flowers, we have 30 varieties and peas right now." Pike said. The farm also offers sugar snap peas, flowers, and tulip bulbs.
