It is that time of year for strawberry lovers to unite and enjoy the delicious "Jersey" fruit grown right here in the Garden State. It's strawberry season and many farms around New Jersey are ready to host you and your picking parties.
Numerous farms in New Jersey have "ready to pick" farms and you can go out and pick your fresh strawberries. These are some of the best strawberries in America and you can bring them home while getting great exercise and fresh air and sunshine too.
The farm we are highlighting in this article is Johnson's Locust Hall Farm in Jobstown, New Jersey. It is a wonderful farm in Burlington County that you and your family will enjoy.
If you have never been strawberry picking it's easy. Looking for good ripe strawberries is the tricky part, leaving the green berries alone for them to ripen during the season. Bring a hat to keep the sun off your head and of course apply that sunscreen. After you get done picking you can go over to the farm market and check out some fantastic foods and merchandise. Strawberry Rhubarb Pie and Apple Cider Donuts, just to name a few tasty treats.
There is also a really cool little animal farm that you can take a peek at and walk around and enjoy on the farm. They also have eating areas where you can enjoy "al fresco" meals. They host weddings and parties too. It's a very cool piece of "Americana" right here in Burlington County.
By the way not only did we pick strawberries, but we also picked fresh radishes too. So maybe put a trip to Locust Hall on your "things to do" list this summer.
