Strawberry season comes early


Christine Krick of Tacoma takes home strawberries from the Picha Berry Farm stand in Puyallup on June 5, 2014. Strawberries came in season about two weeks early in the Puyallup valley and are being picked in abundance.

Picha Farms, family-owned since 1904, is now in the hands of the third generation of owners, brothers Russ and Dan Picha. They sell out of two farm stands, one in Puyallup just off River Road at 66th Avenue East, and one in Tacoma at South 74th Street and South Tyler Street.

U-pick is offered; check their Facebook page for updated information on availability, or call the farm stand at (253) 841-4443. To find a berry farm near you, check this list, sorted by county.


Totem variety strawberries are for sale at the Picha Berry Farm stand in Puyallup.
