If you are from South Florida chances are you are just as excited as I am about the Knaus Berry Farm reopening this past Tuesday, October 30th.
The first time I visited the farm was with my husband, who was my boyfriend at the time, for a date. We picked fresh strawberries and I tried the best homemade strawberry milkshake with a side of hot cinnamon buns.
The Knaus Berry farm has been family owned and operated since 1956. They are closed during the summer season which is why many residents of South Florida have been so excited for the recent annual opening which is the last week of October/first week of November through mid-April, during the Redland farming season in Miami.
Aside from the U-pick of strawberries and tomatoes you can enjoy an assortment of fresh baked goods including one of the most popular items, cinnamon rolls, honey james and jellies, lettuce, herbs, shakes, and ice-cream.
What was once a strawberry stand on the side of the road has become The Knaus Berry farm, one of Miami's favorite spots to visit throughout the Fall season. It is so popular that some people show up several hours before the doors open, many media outlets cover opening day on the news, and long lines of people wrap around the property. If that isn't a sign that those hot and sticky cinnamon buns are worth it...I don't know what is!
