Switch up your regular weekend routine of dinner and a movie and go enjoy nature instead. Not only will this adventure allow you to taste fruit that’s fresher and juicier than what you’ll find in your grocery store’s produce section, but picking berries is just one of the many activities that the two of you can enjoy. Many strawberry farms also have petting zoos, beautiful flowers, souvenir stands, and great photo opportunities. Be prepared to pay with cash or check because most farms do not accept credit cards. Another tip: Wear tennis shoes and clothes you don’t mind getting a little dirty.

After you’ve walked around the strawberry patch and filled your baskets, have a romantic picnic with your partner. Pack a blanket, some napkins, and a few food items that will pair nicely with the fruit you collected. For an easy and delicious treat, consider bringing angel food cake and whip cream and adding in your freshly-picked strawberries. But make sure you wash your hands and all that fruit before you get to munching!

Not only will this adventure give you and your love some sweet treats but some sweet memories too!
