Farmers Start Strawberry Season With Pick Tennessee Products Media Days April 24th and 25th
NASHVILLE – Two Tennessee strawberry growers plan to celebrate their crops with a special Pick Tennessee Products media day during the last week of April. Visitors who come to pick strawberries that day can take home free recipe cards and have the chance to win a basket of artisan foods from Tennessee.
Bradley Kountry Acres Strawberries and Greenhouse in Sumner County, owned by Mike and Cathy Bradley, will host a strawberry picking media day on April 24th. The Bradley’s also have a large selection of spring bedding plants, herbs, vegetable plants, ferns and hanging baskets grown in their own farm greenhouses.
On April 25th, Pick Tennessee Products will be at Circle S Farms near Lebanon, owned by Nelson, Emmie Lou and Donnie Steed.
Media will have the opportunity to interview farmers and officials in attendance, take a tour of the farm, and will receive a “goody bag” including digital images and information about local foods and farms.
