A berry fine day_IGAnyone else have fond memories of going blueberry and/or strawberry picking as a kid? I remember having so much fun seeing just how many berries I could fit into my basket.  There was also excitement for all the possibilities of different recipes to eat the berries once we brought them home. They seemed to taste so much better than ones at the store, since we had done the hard work to pick them ourselves! As the berry season is almost upon us, here are a few local places for picking:

Franklin, TN

Boyd Mill Farm – Blackberries


Golden Bell Farm – Blueberries


 Stoney Creek Farm – Blackberries & Blueberries


Murfreesboro, TN

Batey Farms – Strawberries


Blueberry Patch – Blueberries
