Friday Farm Share: I Am A Farm Whore

*Most Fridays, Holyoke Home shares images from our weekly farm share at Mountain View Farm in Easthampton, Massachusetts. But this week, I cheated on my farm and 'visited' another farm. Because I am a Farm Whore.*
In fact, since I'm spilling the beans? I might as well tell you: I am also a berry whore. Can't. Get. Enough. Berries. Every year, I trek up to Norse Farms in South Deerfield, Massachusetts to pick me some fresh local berries.
Norse Farm has the BEST berries in the Pioneer Valley. And before you get all organic-y on my ass, I don't even care if they spray insecticides. Bottom line? Norse farm fruit tastes the best. However - Norse farm also has this weird 'Strawberry Man' thing going on. See the smiling strawberry in the photo above WITH A HAT ON?
OMG! THAT GUY ATE SO MANY BERRIES, HIS HEAD TURNED INTO A BERRY. THAT IS SUPER SCARY.

Wana know what my favorite summer activity, EVER? Take a giant handful of blueberries. I SAID GIANT. Look at them carefully. Okay, kind of jostle them around a little in your palm. Now, in one fell swoop, open your mouth wide and stuff them all in. YOU ARE WELCOME.

  1. I am fairly confident that the only thing that would make your favourite summer activity any better would be to add a dollop of whipped cream before the closing of the mouth. I am not 100% certain about this, but I am more than happy to do extensive research to back up my claims.

  2. Oh my, those raspberries look wonderful! We are growing our own and this year we got enough that I was able to make 2 batches of jam and also enough to just snack on. Yum! I laughed at your statement about being a farm whore..I always say I'm a "mow ho"..love that chore!

  5. This made me laugh. I WISH I had farms closer, cause I'd be whoring myself all over the place as well.

  7. Given the opportunity, I would choose being a farm whore over most other kinds of whores. Just LOOK at those big beautiful berries!
