Today I have a, “Mom Reviewed,” post from Codi of Stroller Strides Puyallup. Codi and the Stroller Strides Plum Moms’ Club took their kiddos to Foxberry Farm for an afternoon of fresh goodies and farm fun. This is one of those places right near us that I can never seem to get to, so I was thrilled when she agreed to send in a report! Here it is:
Foxberry Farm was a blast for the kids AND the moms! The kids enjoyed feeding the chickens, cows, and horses; watching the bees make honey (and sampling some!), and picking flowers and berries. The kids worked together to hold out a big white sheet to catch juicy yellow plums as they fell from the trees thanks to a little help from Farmer Ron, and then we all sat under the apple trees and enjoyed our plums and a picnic lunch. The owners, Ron and Cindy, are incredibly generous, and they made us all feel welcome, and for just a few dollars, loaded us up with lots of yummy produce and flowers so that we could take a little bit of the farm home with us!
If that doesn’t convince you, I’m guessing the pic will. Holy wholesome cuteness, Batman!
Foxberry Farm is a mom and pop operation, with limited hours, so check before you go to see what is in season and available for picking. They update their answering machine daily. The farm is located in that rural triangle where Puyallup turns into Tacoma, and they’re typically open Thursdays-Sundays, though they will be closed Labor Day weekend. If you want to take your group, please call first so they can make arrangements and be prepared. I don’t want to be responsible for starting a farm frenzy. 🙂 The # is 253-926-8407
Big thanks to Codi and her Stroller Strides moms. If you’re in the Puyallup area, their playgroup meet-ups are open to all, and they’d love to have you. If you’ve been thinking about doing something to get yourself in shape, or just feel a little better, she’d also love to tell you about Stroller Strides. You can check ’em out on Facebook or at their website. I know several readers who are part of this group and really enjoy it.
