Here’s an event that we used to attend every year when our daughter was little – it’s fun for the whole family.
Actually, we love Butler’s Orchard in general. It’s a great place to buy fresh produce, and you can even pick it yourself. (see picking schedule below.) Their Farm Market will reopen on May 11th for the season.
I remember taking my daughter strawberry picking – she would pick a strawberry – then eat a strawberry – then pick another then eat another – after about 4 or 5 she was done. It was so much fun making a family memory.
If you don’t live in this area, check for a local orchard that may be doing a similar event.
