The Strawberry and Flower is a self picking farm at Ramot HaShavim. And this post will take you through our latest visit. Let’s begin!
What is the Strawberry Season in Israel?
As I mentioned in Strawberry Picking At Hod HaSharon, the season is winter (usually December until March). And towards the end of this period, some farms allow strawberry picking (self-picking).
Last year we visited Stalbetut (see Strawberry Picking At Hod HaSharon for additional details). And this year we decided to visit The Strawberry and Flower.
The Strawberry and Flower is situated at Ha-Tarnegol street in Ramot HaShavim.
Map of the area:
During our 2019 visit, the entrance fee was 40 NIS per person. It also included a small basket for strawberries (can fit about 300 – 400 grams – see photo below).
Instead of a small basket, you can take a big plastic box that is suitable for a bouquet. Moreover, you can purchase an additional basket for 20 NIS and an extra box for 30 NIS.
Also, I wanted to mention that during the picking season, you can usually find coupons online.
The opening hours will vary depending on the weather and the amount of the available strawberries. I will just mention that they are open on Saturdays. In any case, before visiting, check the opening hours on the official Facebook Page.
The Strawberry and Flower cover about twenty acres. And they grow a variety of plants, but we will start with strawberries.
The strawberries are grown on the land and you can eat as much as you want.
There were several different types of strawberries. And some of them were huge.
After visiting greenhouses with strawberries, we continued to the greenhouses with flowers.
As we entered the flowers section, it reminded me of the Buttercup Picking Festival.
There were mostly buttercups and anemones. And you could make a lovely and colorful bouquet.
And if you love anemones then you have to check out Festival Darom Adom.
Our visit was just after a big migration of butterflies. And we saw hundreds of then in the greenhouses.
Beyond what is mentioned in the name, you can find some vegetables at The Strawberry and Flower.
Here is for example the pepper greenhouse with several trivia facts.
Did you know that the cucumber originated in India? And as you guessed, this is the cucumber greenhouse.
The array of vegetables was not too wide. And not in all cases we found ripe vegetables. But it is a lovely addition to the attraction.
The Strawberry and Flower is a lovely attraction at Ramot HaShavim. We spent around two hours at this farm and enjoyed our visit. And if you love Agritourism, then consider visiting this place.
