In 1820, our family settled on the banks of Kelly Creek, just at the St Clair and Shelby county line. Our family farm has grown just about everything that can grow in Alabama in the 200 years since then. However, while strawberries have made an occasional appearance in the garden, 2021 marked our very first season as strawberry farmers. We jumped into this adventure with both feet, planting nearly 5 acres of strawberries (that is 34,000 plants)! We have had thousands of our friends and neighbors come visit our u-pick farm, asking questions and sharing tips. We have learned so much, so I thought I would share some of my favorite tips to help you get the most out of your visits to our u-pick strawberry farm. First up: 7 tips to help you capture the memories of your farm visit with great photos.
