Living Life in and around Lyme: It’s Berry Picking Time!
Nancy Copeland’s Guest Blog
It’s peak strawberry picking season in the Upper Valley right now. That means get your sun hat out and grab a friend and head on over to any of the local farms and strawberry fields. This morning we picked at Cedar Circle Organic Farm in Thetford, Vt. Plenty of luscious red berries to be had by all. Pick a few then eat a few and then pick a few more. Beautiful views of the surrounding hills and the Connecticut River. They told us there is still about 2-1/2 weeks of strawberry picking left! The Farm also has The Hello Cafe, with wonderful scones and muffins and cookies and cool drinks.
Its the season to visit all of our local Farm stands and buy fresh veggies and more. North of Lyme you will find:
- Root 5 Farm in Fairlee, VT
- Cross Roads farm in Post Mills, VT
- Pierson Farm in Bradford, VT
- Peaked Moon Farm in Piermont, NH
- Four Corners Farm in Newbury, VT.
Soon it will be raspberry and then blueberry picking!
