In Southern California, the arrival of Spring marks the beginning of fabulous fruit season and gorgeous ruby red strawberries kick off the season in juicy style! I was absolutely delighted when The California Strawberry Commission invited me and my family to spend the day out in their Strawberry Fields in Oxnard and immerse ourselves in all things strawberries!
Upon arrival, we were whisked away (rustic style) on a tractor into the strawberry fields
We immediately jumped into the fields and started picking the most vibrant, fresh, ruby red berries
Have you ever tried farm fresh picked Strawberries? I highly rec it, they are nothing short of spectacular especially when they are at peak season. And my little man just couldn’t resist . . . . .
