I love this time of year. Not only for the extremely nice weather, but strawberries are ready to be picked! Fresh strawberries are my favorite…they just taste so much better than store-bought. Thankfully, there are a couple of strawberry farms near me that I can visit.
(I’m pretty positive I was thinking about how good the strawberries looked in this picture above!)
I chose to visit the Herzog Berries farm in Underwood, MN today due to it being the closest. The first farm I was originally going to was three hours away! This one was only about an hour away from where I was staying.
They are open from 7:30am-12:00pm so I arrived around 9:00am. Not too early, but not too late where I’m rushing. You are allowed to pick the strawberries yourself or you can buy some already picked. I chose to pick my own because I find it always fun and relaxing to pick strawberries or really any fruit/vegetable.
I only had one bucket for myself, but that filled up really quickly! I was probably only there for 45 minutes.
Afterwards, I stopped at Phelps Mill. Phelps Mill is an old flour mill from the late 1800’s that is no longer in production. Surrounding the mill is a general store and a large park where the Phelps Mill Festival is hosted every year.
It’s a very lovely park and I couldn’t resist doing a little outfit picture here 🙂
My top is from J. Crew (similar top) that I bought for spring last year and my scalloped shorts are from Lilly Pulitzer. I own multiple colors and designs in this style of shorts from Lilly. They’re so comfortable and I love that they aren’t too short at a 5″ inseam.
I also wore my white patent Prada sandals (similar shoe) along with my favorite Gucci Soho Disco Bag. For accessories, I wore a Kate Spade watch, a gold chain-linked bracelet from J. Crew, a monogram necklace, and my Prada Tortoise Sunglasses.
On my way back, I stopped at Ye Olde Schoolhouse for lunch. This is an old schoolhouse that was converted into a restaurant!
Hope everyone has a great Tuesday and hopefully can get out and pick some strawberries while they last 🙂
