What better way to show your children where food comes than a farm where it’s grown?! Here in Utah, there are far fewer U-pick farms than there were available to us in California, and in addition, they open much much later since we have a “real” winter here. I was excited to find a U-pick strawberry farm about an hour north of us last week! Unfortunately, it has been raining – big rain – every day for a few weeks, and every day I tried to take the kids last week we got rained out. Our good weather news is that the rain might be behind us for awhile, so we’re going this week! I’m pretty sure we won’t come home with too, much, and I’m expecting to leave the farm with 3 children dripping strawberry juice off their faces (reminder to self: have kids wear old clothes!).
