There’s No Better Place To Spend The Day Than This Strawberry Farm In North Carolina

With April somehow already wrapping up, one thing is for certain – soon, fruits of all kinds will be harvesting and ready for the pickin’. While we might have to wait a bit for watermelons or peaches, the first fruit to harvest in North Carolina is ‘berry’ sweet: it’s the strawberry! Strawberry pickin’ or even just pulling over at a fruit stand on the side of the road has long been a beloved tradition for families. If you’re looking for a totally unique roadside produce stand turned strawberry extravaganza store, how about visiting the farm that’s home to the ‘world’s largest strawberry’?
