The beginning of winter means so many exciting things, but there’s one event that happens every year which we get super excited about.
Yep, it’s that time of year again—strawberry picking season! And we could not be more thrilled.
It’s no secret that ‘paddock to plate’ is kind of a big deal right now on the Coast, so being able to visit an actual farm and pick our own strawberries is SUCH an exciting prospect. #toilinthesoil
It’s also the perfect way to spend a lazy weekend afternoon—just imagine basking in the sun while picking your very own produce. And, best of all, we’ve found the perfect spots for all your strawberry picking dreams to come true. Yes, we’re talking about two of our perennial faves, Strawberry Fields and Eumundi Strawberry Farm.
These two incredible local farms have both opened the 2018 strawberry picking season with a bang and the produce haul is predicted to be one of the sweetest years yet. Can I get a heck yes?!
And, the other great thing about PYO berries, is that you’re also looking out for your environmental footprint with a reduction on both transport and plastic. So, grab a few of your faves, get off that couch and head out to the farm where you can reconnect with your inner farmer and also score some epic noms.
It’s literally one of the best things you’ll do this winter on the Sunshine Coast.
