Locally Grown? It’s strawberry time!
Like all serious foodies, I do my best to eat as much locally grown food as possible.Â Believe it or not, there is quite a bit of agriculture happening in our neck-of-the-woods.
John Iaukea from Windy Hill let us know that it’s strawberry time at the farm.Â John says that the berries are just starting to come in so if you’re planning to come and pick, you ought to give a call first to make sure that there are berries available.Â The Iaukea’s have installed a very interesting raised bed system for their berries which allows pickers (that would be you; it’s a U-Pick operation) to gather berries without too much stooping.
Windy Hill Farm is located at 14663 Mahan Drive.Â Mahan is the local name for US-90 on the east end of the county.Â Remember: Call the farm first to make sure they have berries available to pick.Â Their number is 894-1511.
