Keep It Local: Berry Picking at Homestead Farm

We had such a great time picking strawberries at Shlagel Farms last year, that it was one of the first things we added to our Summer Bucket List this time around. Fortunately our same strawberry picking buddies suggested that we check out Homestead Farm this year and we joined them (along with several other school friends) on a recent day off. It was a gorgeous sunny day and we hit the fields before checking out adorable baby animals (the piggies! oh the piggies!) and having a nice little picnic. And given that it's summer, we might have squeezed in a little geocaching on the way home ....

Homestead Farm still has strawberries for picking, but check the website before you go to make sure. We'll be going back for blackberries and cherries later this summer!
