Update from Farmer Carter: Get Ready for Strawberries!

Can you believe it? Strawberry picking season is right around the corner. At Southern Belle Farm, that’s a big deal! We use our berries to make our famous homemade strawberry ice cream & strawberry shortcakes at Mimi’s Bakery on site. Not to mention our tasty jams, jellies, and ciders that we sell year-round in our Country Market. But, our favorite thing about Strawberry picking season is when YOU come to visit the farm! We see thousands of visitors come through each year to pick gallon buckets of our berries. It’s the perfect spring and summer activity to get your family and friends outside in the fresh air. Keep reading for more details on our Spring season.

And, Don’t Forget about Spring Field Trips!

Give your students a truly memorable & educational experience! Our 330-acre outdoor classroom is the perfect setting to grow young minds and encourage students to appreciate agriculture! Your farm field trip includes fun & seasonal activities, educational demonstrations, and a picnic. Make sure your students bring a sack lunch to enjoy under our covered pavilions. If students visit before strawberries are ripe, we give them a seeding demonstration to show them how plants grow from seeds. They will plant a seed in a little container to take home and watch grow! Spring Field Trips are available on weekdays, Tuesdays-Fridays.
