This year's strawberries at Boston Hill Farm in North Andover.

Mild winter, warm spring. That means the time for sweet, succulent, local strawberries is now. On June 16, Connors Farm in Danvers celebrates their harvest in a big way with music by Boston Rockabilly, hayrides, pony rides, and barbecue -- plus strawberry shortcake and chocolate-dipped berries of course. Meanwhile, over at Land's Sake in Weston, they're throwing an old-fashioned Strawberry Day with music, children's activities, farm animals, and pick-your-own organic berries. If you like art with your shortcake, head to the Strawberries and Art Festival on the Westford Common. Find info on other strawberry events here. Click here to locate a farm for strawberry picking, then try this shortcake recipe at home.
