Have you ever been strawberry picking? It is a fun thing to do with your kids!
Do a search to find 'pick your own' farms near you. Below are links for the Philly and South Jersey area. Strawberries are just starting to come in season but call ahead to make sure they are ready.
Linvilla Orchards in Media, PA is a neat place to go. They also have a market that sells plants, produce, food and they have a great bakery too! Below is a pic of all the strawberries we picked last year!They also offer apple picking in the fall and blueberries, peaches, tomatoes and more in the summer!…they also have a petting zoo. Below are some great strawberry recipes and an easy no cook strawberry jam.
