The moment we’ve all been waiting for is here—Spring on the Farm!

Our strawberries aren’t quite ready yet. We’ve had to tuck them in under blankets multiple times to protect them from the chilly spring weather. But don’t fret! If you’re a Georgia native, you’ll know that the cold weather is here one day and gone the next. We’ll be inviting you out to the farm for U-Pick Strawberries before you know it!

The Southern Belle Farm team has been preparing for months and we’ve planted even more strawberries in anticipation of your visit. This is an exciting time for us because it’s only the beginning of fun on the farm. After spring is done, we still have our Summer, Fall, and Christmas seasons to look forward to. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves! Keep reading to learn more about our upcoming spring season before your visit.
