Get your produce fresh straight from the Farm!  Check out Schaers, Broad Branch Farm, and the Farmers Markets.
Schaer's Country Market
Strawberry picking in the fields started June 3 at Schaer's. Your whole gang gets to ride a tractor wagon to the fields, then pick away! It's an awesome activity to do with the family! Strawberry season is very short, so don't miss out! Don't forget your sunscreen and a hat, and have fun!!!  They also sell additional produce and canned items in their market.
