Fairwinds Farm

Aaaahhhh, tis the season...
I love my strawberries. And I really love them from my aunt & uncle's farm. Fairwinds Farm in Topsham & Bowdoinham, ME, owned by Pete & Cathy Karonis is by far the best place for strawberries in this area. Despite all the rain we've had this season, they still have a fabulous selection for picking your own. Located off Brown's Point Road in Bowdoinham, it's a little off the beaten path, next to the Kennebec River, but it's beautiful there.
I worked at the field on Saturday before the rain hit, then Bobby & I took the kids picking yesterday morning. In less than an hour we just about filled a flat. Plus I managed to get about 5 quarts on Saturday as well. I now have 3 gallon-sized bags in my freezer full of both whole berries and mashed berries. As soon as I have some free time I'll be making some jam. Yum!

You're just making me very homesick. I LOVE strawberries 7 days a week, 3 meals a day. I have to buy imported ones...yuk....compared to those. Lucky duck.
