We’re berry happy you’re here, Madison (ok, we’ll admit that one was low-hanging fruit).

We’re approaching berry season — expected to start in the coming week — and the 608 has several places where you can pick berries yourself, plus local ways to include them in your next meal (or dessert).

Produce always tastes sweeter when you pick it yourself, so here are eight southern Wisconsin farms that are an easy drive away.
