Strawberry Season is Almost Over

Strawberry Season is Almost Over

by Steve Artabane

We’ve taken the kids to pick strawberries twice this year. Once at Waller Family Farm in Durham and once at McAdams Family Farm in Efland. For those who are new to the area and haven’t done this agribusiness activity, it is a great way to get outside and gather farm fresh produce.

For more information, check out the NC Strawberry Growers website, or visit your favorite grower at the Durham Farmer’s Market or South Durham Farmers market. http://www.ncstrawberry.com/growers.cfm

Pick them soon, there are only a few weeks left in the season to gather fresh, local strawberries for pies, jams, smoothies or just plain by themselves.
