It's strawberry season! Nowhere is this more evident than mid-June in South County. The beautiful, ripe, red berries are abundant for picking or just ready for purchase at local farms. Strawberry picking is a great way to spend the day with the kids, teaching them about where our food comes from, and how it reaches our dining tables. Exeter-Strawberries - Barry Kaplan
