We had a mission. To spread the love for this gorgeous red fruit and to encourage everyone to feed our friends, the bees! Our plan of attack was simple: share strawberry plants with customers they could take home and plant somewhere special - where it would bring joy every day throughout summer. The sight of each customer carefully selecting their spot in nature filled us with pride; we knew these little beauties would surely satisfy berry lovers later on down the road! But let’s not forget those lovable honey-makers who help make strawberries possible, too. Don’t stop at just planting strawberries - try making some delicious recipes below that we've selected from our blog. When you feed one bee, you give back more than sweetness – you create community spirit and inspire others around you to "bee inspired."

Always buy organic
Ahh, strawberry season! It’s time to pick up your gardening tools and get elbow-deep in the dirt. Homegrown strawberries are not only free from pesticides, but their flavor is far superior to store-bought ones. The challenge for organic farmers, however, lies on the fact that these delicious berries grow so close to the ground making them more vulnerable to fungal diseases and pests. Whereas conventional farming dictates strong chemical use, sustainable practices such as crop rotation provide an answer without relying heavily on chemicals - something we encourage here at every event! After all, there's no need for pesticides when you can enjoy fresh and juicy homegrown organic wonders. We hope you'll find a way to enjoy this year's strawberry crop before it's gone.
