Nothing says "Summer" like Strawberries!!

www.hallfamilyfarm.com

 
And no one does strawberries like Hall Family Farm. I absolutely adore Hall Family Farm. Right past Ballantyne, we've been going for a few years now for strawberries in the spring/summer, and for pumpkins in the fall. They even do birthday parties, and my twins had a BLAST when they celebrated their second birthday at the Hall Family Farm pumpkin patch.
This year the weather has been tricky, but now the strawberry fields are looking GREAT, and the strawberries are delicious. Every day you can pick-your-own strawberries, take a hayride, check out the chickens, play in the awesome kids' area (sandbox, rubber duck races, tricycles, maze, etc.).

And I can't forget the smoothies and funnel cakes!! They also have a great farm stand with pre-picked berries, breads, honey, jellies, jams and more. If you are looking for a great family outing, Hall Family Farm is the place to be. They update daily on their Facebook Page about farm hours and field conditions, so be sure to "LIKE" them to stay up to date on what's happening at the farm.

Make it a great week!!
