Strawberry Picking at Greenbluff

Jun 24, 2014 by

I live very close to this town called Greenbluff, it’s a conglomeration of farms and they have activities every month there is some fruit in season. Next week is the Strawberry festival, in July a Cherry festival complete with Cherry trot and pit spot contest! Thereafter a Peach festival then a fall harvest with pumpkins and corn mazes.

As I have guests in town we went to the early opening of the u-pick strawberries at Siemer’s farm and visited some other spots for cider tasting, caramels, ice cream and had some great lunch at the Harvest House. I look forward to coming back when the lavender is in bloom and when the bands and festivities are in full swing!
