11th Annual Hillsborough 4-H Strawberry U-Pick

March 17, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

Join 4-H in the strawberry fields on Saturday, March 17th, 2018

Hillsborough 4-H Youth Foundation volunteers.

The Hillsborough 4-H Youth Foundation will host their 11th Annual Strawberry U-pick benefiting Hillsborough County 4-H Youth programs.  For one day only, the public can pick their own strawberries for $.50 per quart.  This is a wonderful family event and a great opportunity for kids to see where their food comes from.  This annual event is made possible with the support of Fancy Farms. This year’s U-pick will be held at 3524 Futch Loop, Plant City, Florida on Saturday, March 17th from 8:30 AM to 4 PM.  *Field location may change day of event*

For the past ten years, the Hillsborough 4-H Youth Foundation has supported Hillsborough  4-H youth programs by providing summer camp scholarships and college scholarships.  In 2017, the Hillsborough 4-H Youth Foundation was able to provide over $10,000 in support to Hillsborough 4-H with  opportunities for over 40 youth to attend summer programs and to celebrate 4-H youth accomplishments during the Annual 4-H banquet.

It’s more than a fundraiser…its’ also a 4-H service project.

During the annual u-pick, over 100 4-H members and parents “give hands to larger service” by picking strawberries for local area food banks.  Over the last three years, 4-H members have picked an average of one ton of strawberries (2,000 pounds) for donation each year.  Our 4-H clubs take pride in this service project and look forward to it each year. Last year, a 4-H club from Pasco County showed up to help pick for donation. This service opportunity is available to the public.  When at the u-pick, ask us how you can help!

For more information on the Strawberry u-pick or 4-H in Hillsborough County, please contact the Hillsborough 4-H office at 813-744-5519.

We hope to see you in the fields on Saturday, March 17th!
