Like most things in 2020, COVID ruined our annual tradition of strawberry picking. We were so happy to back at it this year and the picking was VERY good. There were SOOO many strawberries...you could smell them as you pick. It took us about 20 minutes to pick 3 gallons. We visited Washington Farms in Bogart. Its a bit out of the way if you live in the Alpharetta area but totally worth the drive. The staff is very friendly and have I mentioned the strawberries are GOOD! Oh and they have home made strawberry ice cream! Perfect way to cool off after picking your strawberries. Another reason we like this farm is that it feels less busy. We've had to wait to pick at other local farms and that just isn't the experience we enjoy.
What are we making with our berries? Well strawberry shortcake, ice cream, smoothies...I like to use them in yogurt parfait and of course strawberry margaritas! Feels like summer.
PS I think this would be such a fun activity for a family session! If you agree send me a message. Strawberries will only be availble for a few more weeks!
