Do you know… NC grows a lot of strawberries?
North Carolina is the fourth largest producer of strawberries in the U.S.. Soon you’ll see these delicious, nutritious treats at farms and markets near you. The North Carolina Strawberry Association provides a free NCSA Farm Locator app for the iPhone (search iTunes). For other web-enabled mobile devices, ncstrawberrymobile.com/mobi offers farm locating features.
The group’s website, ncstrawberry.com, has fun activities and easy recipes in its Kids section. (BTW: Try the “strawberry shortcake” recipes. They’re really “strawberry shortcuts”— one uses cinnamon toast. Yum!)
