I heard one of my favourite quotes walking into the Beerenberg strawberry picking field last year. A father looked down to his 5 year old son and instructed, “James, your job this morning is to eat your own weight in strawberries.” The boy promptly ran into the field of strawberries and did as he was told. It’s an open secret that whilst picking your own strawberries at Beerenberg (in Hahndorf) it’s acceptable to try a few along the way. Just to make sure they’re ok. Most people like to make very sure they’re ok.
We’re right in the thick of strawberry season in the Adelaide Hills right now, so if you’re looking for a fun activity for the kids then get yourself out to a field. Not only is it entertaining, but it also feeds them and builds an appreciation for where food actually comes from. At Roasted On, we’re all about freshness and it doesn’t get any fresher that eating fruit picked straight from the farm.
