Every year I plan to visit Knaus Berry Farm in Homestead but rarely am I able to juggle our work schedules to allow for this delectable jaunt.

This year, the twins and I made the pilgrimage to the farm which is run by Dunkers (a sect of German Baptists) for their sticky buns, milkshakes, and u-pick strawberries. They are open, as they say, “Lord willing, every November through mid-April.” It isn’t uncommon to visit the farm and see adults and young children dressed in Amish looking attire. The women wear long skirts and bonnets, and most of the men have long beards.

The lines into the bakery are long but well worth the wait. This past week we visited the farm, picked fresh tomatoes and strawberries, and picnicked in the sun.
