‘Tis the season for strawberries! We visited the Swanton Berry Farms near Santa Cruz to pick some sweet organic strawberries, right off the bushes. It was a nice sunny day as we bent over in the quest for red, juicy, blemish-free strawberries. We picked nearly 3 pounds of strawberries. We made fruit crepes out of a major portion of it and snacked on the rest. The berries were incredibly sweet and over in no time!
Swanton has 2 locations within 10miles of each other, with strawberries to pick. We think the location to the south had a variety of bigger strawberries. This location also had a café with Strawberry shortcake, Blackberry cobbler, Ollalieberry truffles, Jams, Jellies, Strawberry rhubarbs and other goodies!
