Friday Favorites: Berry Picking

Last fall we found this cute berry farm, with a great brunch place, cute stores and a ‘u-pick’ for all sorts of berries. The only thing was… we missed berry picking season!! So all year we have been set on going back this summer at the right time and doing a bit of berry picking!image

This past weekend was the weekend. Berry picking time! Now with all the rain and hail we’ve been having the only berry option for picking was sour cherries. We’ll take it!

After brunch we got ourselves some berry picking buckets. Worked our way through the maze of bushes and eventually managed to find the sour cherries. Follow the cherry signs!

Let the picking begin!!

A Trip to the Berry Picking Farm

IMG_5543This past weekend we drove out of the city to a little berry picking farm.

It’s past berry picking season…but we had some taste food for brunch with my parents in the cute little restaurant that was there. I ended up having dessert for brunch… but a scone is kind of breakfast-y right?!?

We did a bit of walking around and it was beautiful; I could just imagine how lush it would be in the summer, and was it ever CUTE with all the old buildings 🙂
