A guest post from one of our neighbors:
There is a new U-Pick Farm that is not too far away (40 min. on Westpark tollway) that has the most delicious strawberries! The kids absolutely loved getting to pick and eat the strawberries. We ended up staying for several hours because the kids really liked playing on the giant sand hill and slide. They also went on a fun hay ride.
The farm (Blessington Farms) is now open on Saturdays from 9:30am-2:30pm because their strawberries are in season from December through April. It is lots of fun!!
Here is a link for directions… http://www.blessingtonfarms.com/index.html
They said that they are adding several other amenities before their grand opening in Spring 2013.
Just wanted to pass this along for those who are looking for a great family outing.
