Strawberry Pickin'...From Our Family to Yours

This past Memorial Day weekend, the Geier family headed out to the Shenandoah Valley to Great Country Farms in Bluemont, VA for what is becoming an annual tradition, Strawberry Pickin'.  For years we have been heading out to a variety of country orchards from Spring to Fall to pick local fruit such as strawberries, peaches and apples for ourselves.  Over the last year we have increased the size of our haul in order to have enough to make preserves and can them.  What started off as just a trip to the country for the family has evolved into a fully scale "pick all you can" event so that we have enough to make individualized closing gifts for our clients.

So if you have a closing with us, you are probably going to get some homemade preserves as a sign of appreciation from our family to yours.  This latest batch is Strawberry Rhubarb which turned out tasty and goes well over ice cream or a buttery biscuit.  Stay tuned for more family pickin' for peaches and apples as the summer goes on and the seasons change.  Also, see some of our happy clients at closing with their own jar of strawberry love.:)
