It’s strawberry picking season in North Carolina! No lie, we go once a week to a local strawberry farm called Wise Acres. It is one of the only organic strawberry farms in our area and that is super important to us because strawberries are the number one “dirty” fruit when it is not organic. The prices are WAY better than even non organic strawberries from a supermarket. It is free to park and play on all of the swings and play areas. They have hay rides, a barrel ride, wood fired pizza, organic strawberry slushies, organic cotton candy, etc. There are chickens, goats… This place is a dream. I spoke with the owner the other day and he moved from city life in Chicago to small town farm life, and he said he wakes up every morning excited about work. In Autumn they have pumpkin picking and their slushies are apple cider! In the winter they have Christmas themed hay rides, bonfire to make smores, story time with Elsa from Frozen, does it get any better? If you are in the Charlotte area, take a little drive to Wise Acres and enjoy the farm life.
