Great Country Farms we finally arrived. The two parking lot attendants, wore yellow vest with smiles were so bright. They directed us to the weeded grassy parking lot. You could tell by the number of cars already there people arrived prior to them opening at 9:00 A.M.
We could see lots of people in the Strawberry Patch. After getting out of the car a Tractor pulling a four wagons filled with people passed us taking more people across the rocky road trail to the other side of the street. A lot people began running, some walking up the road, crossing the street hurriedly, even a few with Baby Strollers, in hopes of getting strawberries before they were Out

They also carried Fresh Farm Eggs, along with a few Meats other local Farmers.
Boarding the rear tarp covered wagon, pulled by the Yellow Tractor was so exciting. We settled into the wooden sits with much anticipation. The ride was bumpy filled with much laughter, and conversations with strangers brought together by a family time.
The Sun seem to smile as we all seem to embrace the beauty of nature. The young children giggled, so contagiously. When the Strawberry Field was insight, they began jumping up and down! The Ten Minute ride seem to last for only seconds, we had arrived.
The Sun was blazing hot, as each of us exited the Wagons. Grabbing Green Baskets and Flat Box Crates, we all headed in different directions to cover the Strawberry Field Radius.
There was a slight breeze, helped a lot, to keep our bodies cool as we gleaned the field.
They offer so much more then Fruit Picking, there is all day fun for everyone. Great Country Farms is Family Friendly place.
