Strawberry Picking in Muskoka

Jordan Mulligan - Thursday, July 04, 2013

Looking to go strawberry picking in Muskoka? We have a couple of great options for you - both for pick-your-own or to buy ready-picked strawberries straight from the farm.

Brooklands Farm

Located in the heart of Muskoka, Brooklands farm has supported six generations of the Riley Family since 1876. Our farm includes a meandering stream, wetlands, forest, fields and heritage buildings.

Brooklands grows about 5 different varieties of strawberries, that differ in maturity, flavour, taste and texture. Some are better for jam as they have a higher sugar content while others are large and fabulous looking and folks love them for eating and feasting their eyes on.

During the berry season we have lots of berries available for pick-your-own die-hards and baskets of pre-picked berries for those of you who love berries but do not have the time, inclination or ability to pick!

Graham and Carla Shaw and their four children, who now range in age from 10 to 17, all put in many hours working on the farm.

They are also, active members of the Ontario Berry Growers’ Association.
