Last night, Chris and the kids picked the first strawberries of the season! They had to look closely to find ripe berries but soon the field will be a sea of red, juicy berries.

Our strawberry fields on the Belleville farm will be open to the public for picking shortly. Please check our crop update  for details.

Ripe strawberries in my kitchen + Cinco de Mayo = DELICIOUS STRAWBERRY SALSA! I just couldn't resist the urge last night to make this scrumptious salsa and it was superb with our deli-made tortilla chips. Creamy avocado, sweet berries, pure honey and tangy lime juice give this salsa a beautiful balance of flavor.

Strawberry season only lasts 3-4 weeks here at Eckert’s, and I will be making strawberry-everything to capitalize on the season!!

Eat well this spring, Angie
