KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - As the warmer weather rolls in, Tennessee farms are turning red with sweet strawberries.

“Tennesseans are always looking to enjoy time with friends and family,” Commissioner Charlie Hatcher, D.V.M. said. “Since it’s strawberry season, a visit to a local farm is a great way to be together and to enjoy the freshest berries around. There are plenty of you-pick and pre-picked options available.”

Farmers throughout the state said the rapid weather changes this year mean an abundance of strawberries will be available.

Depending on the weather, strawberry season typically lasts four to six weeks.
