Strawberry season is nearly here! This summer, if you are looking for fun and affordable activity to do, you can pick some delicious berries with your friends.
Within Ottawa, Shouldice Berry Farm & Market is an adorable strawberry farm that you will want to add to your summer bucket list. The farm has three locations in Ottawa where you can visit and pick delicious fresh strawberries. You can find the 3 pick-your-own strawberry fields in Barrhaven (2901 Woodroffe Avenue), Bells Corners (3451 Richmond Road), and Nepean (2110 Merivale Road).
What makes this such a great summertime activity, is you only pay for what you pick. So you can collect as little or as many strawberries as you want, depending on your budget. Plus, after you have all your fresh fruit, you and your friends can either eat them as is or make them into a delicious treat like strawberry shortcake or strawberry popsicles!
