Strawberry Festival

Two weekends ago we went to a strawberry festival. Soergel's Farm is about 45 minutes away and we had heard great things about events that they have put on in the past so when Mike heard about the Strawberry Festival we decided it would be a really fun thing to do as a family.

The first thing we did was catch the hay ride up to the strawberry fields to pick our own strawberries.

Before catching the tractor ride back down to the main part of the farm we took some time to run through the maze.

It was an absolutely gorgeous day. Perfect for a family outing at a local farm!

The kids enjoyed the pony rides... (At $2 per kid to be walked around a small circle three times they better be liking it!!)

There were a few "petting zoo" type animals, lots of food and strawberry desserts. We also got to look for gems!

Soergel's also has a gift shop with lots of unique items, a garden center,  organic store. They sell Amish made furniture. There is tons to do there. If you are in the area you should definitely check it out! And I'm sure we'll be going back next summer for the Strawberry Festival! It was a perfect way to spend a family day out!
