It is hard to believe that I have made it 37 years without picking berries. I’ve picked fruit from trees, but always want to pick berries. I added it to my #37in37 list and last weekend we went!
We were sure where to go, but a quick google search for closest farms brought us to Wise Acres Organic Farm.
Wise Acres is a family owned u-pick organic strawberry and pumpkin farm in Indian Trail. They are a USDA Certified Organic farm and grow berries using only natural methods to ensure the healthiest and most delicious produce.
I promise Brody was excited to pick berries. LOL.
We each got a container…they have bigger ones, but we each wanted to have our own. The strawberries are $3.29 a pound when you pick them yourself.
We had to stop and see the goats…So cute! They also had chickens, bunnies, hayrides, and a couple of playgrounds.
The pear tree didn’t have any fruits, but we are going to go back when they produce later in the summer.
We washed up and started picking! You want to pick berries that are red all over, and get them with the stem still on.
