Best Berry Picking 

Hilgert's Berry Farm & Market

Like the difference between reading about sex and having sex: That's the gulf separating freshly picked berries from boxed ones. So when berry-picking time rolls around -- early June for strawberries, late June and July for red raspberries -- head to Hilgert's Berry Farm & Market. Nestled among the wooded hills of Portage County, the family-owned farm boasts 100-plus acres of "pick-your-own" fields, and the quantity and quality of the crops never disappoint. Besides berries, other homegrown goodies include peas, beans, peppers, greens, and tomatoes. And if picking them yourself is too much work, ready-picked produce is usually available in the market, inside a 100-year-old barn.
