What could be finer than to be in Carolina picking and eating fresh, sweet locally grown strawberries? Strawberry season is in full swing and anyone who likes fresh, local fruit can get out to a farm to pick berries or pick them up at the farm stand or farmers market. Local berries are sweeter and much more flavorful than berries that have been shipped in from other states. There is really no comparison. You simply can’t beat the taste of a berry grown on a nearby farm.
