Once strawberries are in season, we pack up the kids in the car and take a trek to one of our favorite haunts, Brandon Farms in Brandon, Florida. It's about 30 minutes away from us but so worth it. They are famous for their strawberry shortcake and I can tell you why its soooooo yummy!!! On one side you can order your shortcake and the other they have a vegetable stand and they also sell jars of jams and honey (you can try the different varieties). Once you're finished with dessert, I mean lunch (in our case) you can go around the back and take in the acres of strawberries. It's just gorgeous! We also had a surprise friend join us at the farm. Isn't he cute! Too bad I'm allergic.
