Henderson County Strawberry Season Has Started!
Henderson County Strawberries are Now in Season
Strawberries are the first fruit to ripen in the spring and nothing compares to a field ripe berry picked fresh from the farm. Once strawberries are picked they stop ripening so often times store-bought berries that have been transported long distances lack that sweet strawberry flavor we crave. My son recently described the taste of a freshly picked strawberry as “Sugar and Sunshine”. You too can find that ripe strawberry flavor locally at the following farms.
