I grew up in Central Florida and I know many will argue the best strawberries are grown in that region; but I’m willing to bet most of those folks have not tasted the strawberries from Burr’s Berry Farm.

A local favorite, Burr’s is famous for the most amazing, sweet berries as well as strawberry shakes, ice cream and sundaes.  They also feature fresh farm produce, homemade jams, hot dogs and a wide variety of other shake and ice cream flavors.   We are purists and always go for the fresh strawberry shakes and just picked berries.

A family owned business for more than 50 years, they have modernized their roadside stand and added a garden area for relaxing while you enjoy their delicious treats.  You can buy berries ready to go, or pick them yourself from the recently added vertical “field” located near the garden.   Self-picked berries will cost a bit less than the ready-to-go pints and quarts.

Burr’s is located in south Miami-Dade County and is open 9-5:30 daily during the season from December until May. On weekends you can run into some long lines and on a busy day they may sell most of their fresh produce.  Plan for enough time to relax and enjoy this unique South Florida experience.  www.burrsberryfarm.com

Not your granddaddy's berry fields - the new fields are vertically grown, five layers high and much easier to pick.

  1. Special. They do taste better when you pick them yourself. I have not done it in a long time. Farms here has closed and have houses built where they were now!

  2. Burrs can be enjoyed by kids of all ages. Picking strawberries from the vertical field is not quite the same as getting down on your hands and knees to pick in a traditional strawberry field but Burrs berries are just as sweet.

I love hearing from my readers!
