FARMVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — Farmers are preparing their strawberry fields for berry picking season.  

Strawberry picking season is a favorite pastime in North Carolina. In Pitt County, at “Home Place Strawberries & More“, the owners said they welcome pre-orders, but the fun is coming out and handpicking your own berries.  

Steve Sutton said while the weather can cause some challenges, their efforts are rewarded with their interaction with families. 

It comes with a lot of challenges, but it comes with a whole lot of rewards, and those rewards are those children, just getting a taste, and a bit of agriculture in their daily lives.
