You may have driven past this place a hundred times and you would only think it was a store front in a strip mall!  However, if you walk into the cute little store, you will realize what you have been missing!
Walk through the store (if you can get past all the delectable homemade treats) and out the back door to be greeted with fields of organic hydroponics!
 
The Girls Strawberry U-Pick in Delray Beach, Florida is more than just a strawberry U-pick; it is an experience where children and adults will be thrilled to pick these sweet, juicy organic treats right off the vine.  This tranquil and beautiful farm offers u-pick strawberries in a unique setting.  The strawberries are grown organically and hydroponically.
The hydroponic plants require less bending and kneeling to pick because they are up off the ground.  Those of you who have visited Disney World and seen the hydroponic gardens in Epcot will have a good idea of what to expect.
The experience doesn’t end there.  After you have picked all the strawberries you want, the next activity is to take a walk in Grandma’s Garden.  Here guests have a chance to hang out and relax in a beautiful gazebo, visit with miniature donkeys, tortoise, swans and birds.  I took my parents and there lots of cozy little places to sit and rest, all while being surrounded by bright strawberry artwork.  The Girls also offer Cherry Tomato picking and other vegetables seasonally, and I have got to try it!

Last but not least is the Organic Gourmet Country Store, where you will want to pick up some homemade treats that will make the whole family happy.  You can buy tasty baked goods and of course The Girls perfect hand-dipped and custom decorated strawberries.  This is where my daughter was introduced to chocolate covered strawberries.  She was so happy!

The farm also does walking tours for groups so there is literally something for everyone here.  Don’t miss out on some of the best tasting treats and fun in South Florida.  The Girls Strawberry U-Pick offers barrels of fun for the price of a pound of strawberries.

  1. I’ve been here for a friends child birthday it was an amazing site in the middle of no where to walk into a storefront and walk back in to the heavenly scent of strawberries. I miss June in New England, red knees, fingers and lips and a fantastic day in the sun picking berries for canning, and shortcake, but this was a close 2nd!

  2. Can somebody who has been here tell me if it costs anything to get in and how much they charge per lb for their strawberries when you pick them. I would greatly appreciate any answers. I was invited to go this thursday and just can’t seem to find their prices anywhere on their site our just plain ol googleing it. Thanks
