One of my favorite things to do with my girls is to go berry picking. So I’m very excited that strawberry season starts in just one week, yay! Our absolute favorite farm to pick strawberries at is Wegmeyer’s. They take strawberry growing to the next level! Their berries are the sweetest and juiciest berries you can find in the D.C. area. Their fields are beautiful and so well cared for – they grow the strawberries on on raised plastic beds, which keeps the berries clean, dirt-free and makes for easy picking. And new this year, they are offering a Sparkling Strawberry wine in partnership with Fabiolli Vineyards.

Wegmeyer Farms has generously offered all Capitol Momma readers a 25% discount during weekdays (M-F) at any of the three locations. Just mention Capitol Momma at the register to receive the discount on your berries. Happy Picking!

Spring has finally arrived in Northern Virginia, and there is no better way to celebrate than picking red, juicy strawberries straight off the vine at Wegmeyer Farms. Berry picking is a fun, healthy outside activity for the kids, particularly after this long winter.  The fields should be ready for picking by Memorial Day.

Starting the week of May 25, Thursday is Family Picking Day, and Wegmeyer Farms would like to extend a 25% discount for Capitol Momma readers when they come and pick on any Thursday this season at one of their three locations.  There is no charge to visit, you only pay for what you pick – $3.99 per pound. Just mention the Capitol Momma discount to the cashier when checking out.
