Go strawberry picking at Maxwell’s Farm

Written by: Aimsel Ponti
Strawberry Picking at Maxwell Farms

Strawberries might not get as much hype in Maine as blueberries, but they’re still a big deal. If you’ve ever had the highly-coveted limited-edition strawberry soft serve at Red’s in South Portland, then you know what we’re talking about. Strawberries are indeed a thing here, and there are several spots where you can pick your own. We’re shining  a light on Maxwell’s Farm in Cape Elizabeth because of location, location, location. When you’re done picking, you can head to Two Lights State Park just down the road for some glorious ocean viewing. Then you make your way home for freezing, baking or whatever else you do with strawberries. We’re pretty partial to strawberry shortcake.  Note: The window of strawberry season doesn’t stay open for very long — it’s typically late June to late July. So gather ye strawberries while ye may!
