We love picking strawberries every summer, and we’ve visited every farm in the Indy area that offers strawberry picking. This year, we so excited to go on a new berry picking adventure at Driving Wind Berry Farm. We’re going indoor strawberry picking!
Driving Wind Berry Farm
Driving Wind is best known for their urban blueberry farm on Michigan Road. Every summer, 1000’s of families drive by, waiting to see the green nets cover the bushes, this means the blueberries are almost ripe for picking. This year, they changed their name from Driving Wind Blueberry Farm to Driving Wind Berry Farm because they’re offering strawberries for u-pick!
Strawberries at Driving Wind Berry Farm
The strawberries are ripe and ready to be harvested and you’re invited to come visit! Strawberry picking at this farm takes place rain or shine because they’re grown in the greenhouse! As my friend Megan said, “You’re inside and you don’t have to hurt your back bending over!”
Strawberries are available for $4.99 per pound when you pick them on your own, or pay $5.99 per pound for pre-picked berries.
At Driving Wind, you’ll be given a pair of garden scissors and you’ll clip the berries from the plants that are growing in vertical pots. Collect as many as you want and then take them to be weighed. Popsicles, flowers and other items are also available for sale. The popsicles at Driving Wind are famous!
This unique strawberry picking experience is like none other in all of Central Indiana!
The farm will open each morning at 8 a.m. and you can “pick” the berries until they run out!
