Hand Holding Strawberries

Strawberry Fields Forever

Strawberry Season is nearly upon us and our chefs can’t wait to get a hold of the local bounty

for use in our bakery… Scones, Muffins, Breads and more! (one of our recipes below)

Bucks County celebrates with festivals and numerous Pick Your Own farms where memories are made, and the luscious red berries, abound for the picking.

 

By the pint, quart or pound,

Pick a field….

Get out and get some!
