In addition to picking strawberries for yourself, you can also pick the fruit for donation to the local food bank. 

Fancy Farms owners Carl and Dee Dee Grooms will open their Plant City strawberry fields for a Hillsborough County 4-H fundraiser Saturday.

You can pick berries for yourself and your family at 50 cents per quart at the farm's seventh annual "Spring Strawberry U-Pick." The event runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Participants can also pick strawberries to donate to the local food bank.

To reach the farm, travel from Interstate 4, Exit 25, on County Line Road until you reach Rice Road. The event will take place rain or shine and there is no limit.

Boys and girls ages 5 to 18 participate in various activities that encourage youth to develop their skills and talents to the fullest. The University of Florida Cooperative Extension Service, USDA and Hillsborough County administer the local 4-H Club.

Call the 4-H Club at (813) 744-5519, ext. 54132.
