I have a really fond childhood memory of going berry picking and it’s something I have always wanted to do with my family! This year I missed the pick your own strawberry season. I also missed buying a large box of already picked strawberries from the guy who sells them on the side of the road. Thankfully I have some left over strawberry jam from last year.
I was not going to miss pick your own raspberries season! I love raspberries and so does my family. When I bring them home from the store they are gone almost before they are out of the bag. We are serious about our raspberries. But I had no idea where to go. Thanks to a couple of my awesome coworkers I was introduced to Farm LoLa. A great place, run by an amazing group of people. I was so excited to take my husband and son there!
The atmosphere is lovely. We could not have asked for a better night. The temperature was perfect and the bugs were minimal. The raspberry field is surrounded by forest. We were greeted by the super friendly staff and one of their many chickens! The field of raspberries was beautiful. My kid loved it and when he was done picking there was plenty of room in our row for him to run and play while he waited for us to finish. They probably should have weighed him before we went in because I think he may have snacked on a few while he was picking. The berries were perfect and so tasty. I was thinking how wonderful it was going to be to have jam in the middle of February and my husband couldn’t wait to get home and have a scoop or two over a dish of ice cream.
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Farm LoLa and came home with a box full of raspberries and a dozen eggs! We will definitely be visiting Farm LoLa again! Check them out on Facebook for picking times!
