Bring a picnic!
Shlagel Farms located in Waldorf has two major events at their farm – strawberry picking in the Spring/Summer and pumpkin picking in the Fall. We visited the farm during strawberry picking and had a wonderful time! Shlagel numbers their rows and directs you upon entry to the row that has the most berries during your visit which is helpful with young kids. Berries as of 2016 were $3.99 per pound. The patch does provide cardboard flats to pick as well as take home which is a nice touch for those who forget to bring buckets. In addition, they have numerous picnic tables set-up so bring a picnic lunch and plan to stay. A kid friendly aspect is that they have a playground structure with swings, slide, and fort set-up so that you can truly maximize your visit.
