Berry good

The start of June means the start of picking your own fresh strawberries! Johnston Farms in Swanton provides individuals with the experience of going out and picking their own strawberries. This fun activity is a great way to get the family together, while also supporting local fruit growers. The farm’s been open since 1954, with the goal to provide “homegrown fruit in a simple, down to earth way.” Kids can also have fun at the farm’s petting zoo, which features goats, donkeys, and more. And come July, people should be able to also pick their own blueberries and black raspberries. For U-Pick hours, call 419-826-1453. Johnston Fruit Farms, 2790 Airport Hwy., Swanton. Open Monday– Saturday, 9am-5pm.
