We needed to wake up early the next day to go to the Strawberry Farm in La Trinidad Benguet. Thank God for noise cancelling ear buds , the key to my deep slumber. It drowned out even the noise of the early wakers who were taking jumpshots outside of the hotel.
After getting my Strawberry Taho fix from Mines View Park, it was time to get Fresh Strawberry Dirt Ice Cream at the Strawberry farm entrance. They cost P15 per cone and it was delicious.
The cost of picking strawberries from the farm is P300 per kilo. It is triple the amount of what you have to pay for a kilo if you opt to just buy instead of pick your own.
You can eat some while picking and you can choose the quality of the strawberry that goes into your basket. Strawberries are very delicate and a lot of strawberries are ruined when picking is not done by actual farmers. I guess that’s where half the cost of strawberry pickings go.
Strawberries are weighed after you’re done picking and that’s when you pay for it.
Just in case you’re wondering, we didn’t pick strawberries. We didn’t have time. Next time, I’ll bring peanutbutter♥ here, we’ll pick strawberries. This is a unique experience and a great family bonding activity.
