We had a really fun time at our first
Strawberry Festival!

Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate the sweetest thing about summer – strawberries!
We think it was a great first festival and we are looking forward to even more strawberry fun next year!
Congratulations to our very own Ray Andrews who won the strawberry jam competition – thank you to all who submitted the amazing jams!
A big thank you to Elaine Flynn for bringing her beautiful pony Emmie and to Krystyna and Sophie for sharing their face painting talents.

Also thanks to everyone who participated in the
strawberry hulling contest!
Lots of fun was had by all and luckily there are
still plenty of berries in the field to pick!

Here are some of our favorite quotes from the field that day:
“If heaven had strawberries, this is what it would look like”
”Wow! This is the strawberry of my dreams!”
