Southern Belle Farms has come a long way since we started frequenting five years ago. The family-oriented activities that they have added are awesome! Each year we have noticed that they have added something new, fun and exciting for kids of all ages. There are plenty of activities to keep your little ones busy like slides, pedal karts, see saws, jumping pillows, train rides, a petting zoo and yeah, of course the strawberry picking.
The strawberries are what drove our little group to start coming to Southern Belle in the first place. We wanted to do something that all of our kids would enjoy, since there is a small age difference between them, as well as the adults. Picking strawberries straight off the vines is a great way to throw in a little educational moment about agriculture and food waste for the kids. Something about the sweet smell of those fresh, ripened strawberries that we couldn’t resist. The strawberries at this farm can grow as big as your hand. They do a great job of keeping the farm clean. The aisle are clear and very easy for you to navigate through without having to worry about falling all over the place. These very delectable berries are easy to spot and pull. You can find some real gems in between the leaves, so don’t be scared to get in there.
If picking strawberries are not your thing than Southern Belle offers a pre-picked gallon of strawberries for purchase inside their country store. When you walk through the door you are immediately greeted by some high-spirited and lively employees who are very friendly and helpful. The charming and rustic farmhouse decor suits this farms motif precisely. The country store offers a wide variety of ready-made items like jams, ciders, salsas, honies, candies, and so much more. They also have a good assortment of souvenirs and keepsake for you to take home from your trip. Before you leave don’t forget to stop and get a slice of their homemade strawberry shortcake or ice cream made from the very strawberries that they grow and harvest from the farm. If you want to make the day last just a little bit longer have a seat out front of the store in one of their many wooden rocking chairs.
Southern Belle Farm is very organized in the way that they conduct their business. The activities are spaced out enough for your kids to run around and not bump into people. Southern Belle also offers blueberry, blackberry, and peach picking throughout the year. If you are interested in planning your trip please visit their website
