Strawberry season

This week we was all about strawberries. We went to our favorite Alstede Family Farm in Chester, NJ and picked up few pounds. Alstede Farm is family owned, open year round and  it has a fun petting zoo with friendly goats, cows, rabbits, ducks, chickens and even one very graceful peacock. They sell organic produce, but best of all they let you pick your own, which is a fun activity for the whole family. My daughter was interested in picking berries for the first five minutes, and then she found other things to do, but I'm glad she had a chance to experience how they grow and eat some fresh from the bush. Nothing tastes more heavenly! The hayride back was a fun and very welcomed addition to the whole experience, since the sun was pretty intense and we got tired quickly. Will be back to pick some raspberries later this summer!
