Pick-Your-Own Strawberries

April 25, 2010

Did you know North Carolina is the 4th largest producer of strawberries in the country? Another interesting fact—North Carolina strawberry farmers grow this delicious fruit, not to ship all over the country; but rather to sell locally.  What better reason to head to a pick-your-own farm for a weekend excursion as strawberry season is in high gear!

We discovered Vollmer Farms—an organic farm located only 15 short away in Bunn, NC.  Clare had a grand time hand picking red ripe strawberries to bring home!  This farm was great—lots of fun things for the kids and a delightful gift shop.  Oh…and organic tomatoes and homemade ice cream!  We’ll be back!
