The fields were brimming with beautiful berries which makes you just want to keep-on-pickin’! These folks are smart as they set you up with a single quart box OR ‘a picker-built-for-six’…quarts that is! and its a pickin-addiction thats hard to resist!
So, yes, SIX QUARTS of Strawberries picked in a matter of about 20 minutes…3 quarts of Earliglow (the first-berry….its a sweet-and smaller berry than the usual and takes a bit longer to pick but SO worth it) and 3 quarts of a more ‘traditional’ larger strawberry. BOTH delicious, and if you’ve never had a just-picked strawberry…all I can tell you its like a taste of heaven!
Upon returning home, a certain someone thought these berries were all for him! (Well, who could resist that face!…He did manage a few.) Anyone who knows our Quincy, is aware that when the word ‘berry’ is mentioned…he comes running!
My drive home from the Farm consisted of pondering all the miraculous concoctions I could create for our inn guests in the coming week (plus delighting in the ability to spoil our sweet child in fur!) Do treat yourself and take a trip to Bonacorsi Family Farm! You’ll love the family, the quality of the food they grow and the quaintness of the farm will have you going back every year as I do, Spring through Fall. See the sign and address below…& happy picking!
