Some Strawberry Picking

This past holiday weekend, my boys and I headed out on the open road. We packed up the car and took a leisurely drive down Highway 1 and made our way towards Santa Cruz. It was such a gorgeous ride. Driving along the coast stopping to watch the waves crash against the shore is an experience not many can have. Along the way, we saw a sign leading up to a farm where you can go and pick your own organic strawberry. Since the lil man is in LOVEEEEĀ  with strawberries, we decided it would be fun to pull over. The Swanton Berry Farm seemed to be a very popular spot. Many already came prepared with their tubberware and baking dishes to load up their goods. After a slight hike to the growing areas, we went down one row of strawberries and showed the lil man how to go about pulling a strawberry off the stem. After a very quick tutorial, he pretty much got the drift. He was off picking and puting them in his basket. We could tell he was in heaven. After he successfully filled up two green cartons of strawberries, we decided to head back and pay for our loot. The nice part about this place was that there was a spot where you can wash them off near the parking lot. It was a good thing to because the strawberries barely made it to the car. He demanded to eat them then and there and so we did. It was such a great experience to see where your fruit is grown, pick them, wash them, eat them and all within 30 minutes!! I would definitely recommend visiting this berry farm. Check out their website to see what other produce they have to offer.
