Crochet Strawberry

Hi Friends,

I am lucky enough to live in an area where there are several small, family farms that are open to the public. A few feature “U-Pick” Strawberries, as well as standard farm fare, like tomatoes, corn, green beans, and the list continues. If you are not familiar with the concept of “U-Pick”, it is a lot of fun! Typically, farm visitors will pay a fee for a small container. Then you can pick the produce yourself, filling the container with the freshest of fresh picked options. This is a huge hit for visitors of all ages, but I think younger kids enjoy it the most. For some, it may be the first time they experience food directly from where it was grown and harvested. But it would not be their last, because activities like these keep them coming back for more!

My absolute favorite local visitor-friendly farm is Growing Paynes Farms. Not only do they have ample strawberry fields for picking, they also host seasonal events, local photographers, and are always friendly and accommodating. I have been repeatedly impressed with their ability to balance their focus between providing quality produce and quality experience to their visitors. You will read more about them in the months ahead, as I am often inspired to create something of my own after spending time on their farm.

With the spring season – and strawberry season – right around the corner, it is no wonder it is on my mind today. It is too early for picking these sweet treats, but never too early to create one! Above are some of my favorite strawberry-picking inspiration photos from Growing Paynes Farms. Don’t they look amazing! Below you will find my pattern for a Crochet Strawberry. These crochet strawberries were so quick to create, I couldn’t help but make enough to fill my Farmers Market Basket.
