strawberry-picking-2

Strawberry picking is a fun way to get out of the house with the kids and nothing beats the taste of fresh strawberries! My son and I went to Cider Hill Farm in Amesbury this week and had a great time. It felt well organized and COVID safety measures were strictly enforced. We had to wash our hands before entering the strawberry field, wear masks and were assigned two rows to pick from. We finished our trip at the Farm Stand with a cider donut and a few biscuits to take home for strawberry shortcake.
