What We Said In Our Kenny’s Strawberry Farm Video
Checking in at the entrance, we were greeted by an employee who told us to grab and bucket and went over the general rules of the farm. Next to the check-in area, Kenny’s has a small picnic section and farm stand. Past that, you can get strawberry-centric snacks at Kenny’s farm Kitchen.
You’ll have plenty of open space to hunt down the tastiest berries out on the field. In our experience, the redder, the better, but you’ll have to devour those fast since they’re already ripe. Because of that, we try to mix it up with some that are less ripe that we can eat half later in the week.
Unfortunately, rain earlier in the week damaged a fair amount of the ripest berries, but the field had so many ready to pick that it was still easy to find good ones. However, strawberries are highly susceptible to intimate weather, so we recommend checking the farm’s FB page before heading over for your visit to ensure the field’s ability to open.
