The grey skies stayed dry! So we were able to make it to the strawberry fields after all. Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits, so I was so excited to find out that Oak Haven Farms is only 3 miles away from my downtown home where I can pick my own berries.
I may have lived in the city for 10 years, but I'm just a country girl at heart. I was tickled to be out on a farm today breathing in some fresh air, enjoying some home-made strawberry shortcake and taking in the views.
You guys out there need to take note ... this would make a FANTASTIC Valentine's date. Or at least that's what us girls decided while sitting around a fire roasting our hot dog lunch. Add a picnic basket, bottle of champagne and some chocolate to these strawberry fields and you're going to win an award for Man of the Year.
It's a great family thing too. Some friends of mine met me out here today with their two sons and it was quite a big deal for them to climb on tractors and play in the dirt. There is even two playgrounds for kids to climb up on things or go for a swing.
When I was in Italy they called things like this Agri-Tourismo. I guess we can call it Agri-Entertainment. Definitely make your plans to get out here soon because strawberry season ends in mid-April.
