December 7, 2017

Yes, you read right!!! The season will finish this coming weekend. We expected last weekend to be the end of it, but the weather has brought its' side by giving us wet, cool weather. 

All of the plants have been lapping up the rain and flourishing in the cooler weather this week - that includes the grass and weeds. Our field staff haven't been able to get into the fields much at all, due to the weather conditions of the last few days, and some of last week. This has lead to a huge spike in the grass and weed growth. The fields look nothing like they did a few weeks ago, between the extreme growth of "other" plants in the fields, the strawberry plants have been sending out runners like crazy. This makes finding the strawberries more of a "hide-and-seek" adventure, as opposed the relative ease with which they were being found a couple of weekends ago.

So, if you're into some serious nature adventure this weekend, come out to The Strawberry Farm to get your fill. From a really muddy experience - take off your shoes and walk through the fields barefoot, or don a pair of "Wellies" 'cause the mud sticks like mad, and it's much easier to clean feet or "Wellies" than it is to clean regular shoes, to hunting down elusive strawberries in amongst the undergrowth - they are there, the farmer has been checking on them.

We will be adding some pictures to our Instagram account during today, to show you guys what the situation is like in the fields. If you're on Instagram, follow us @the_strawberry_farm. We will be posting more about what we do and how things are coming along on the farm - from our organic veggies, to preparing the fields for next season, all the way through to spa specials and upcoming events. Yes, it's taking us some time to get to all of these wonderful social media things, we live on the farm, out here technology takes some time to catch up and then still be explored.

Saturday will see the kitchen closing about half an hour earlier than usual, but milkshakes and deserts will still be available until 4 pm.

We have just checked the weather, for the umpteenth time in the last few days, and it looks like we may be in for a partly cloudy weekend, or the sun might be out in all its' glory, we still aren't 100% sure yet.

So, bring the kids out to the farm on the weekend (we are still not open during the week, yes, we know it's school holidays officially from tomorrow - last day of school today) for a different experience.
