After our disappointment from last week’s Strawberry Festival here in Beacon, Mark and I needed a strawberry fix. So we drove out to Fishkill Farms in Hopewell Junction and picked a couple of quarts of fresh strawberries. One more item crossed off the Hudson Valley Bucket List. Why did we chose Fishkill Farms? They are relatively close to Beacon and state on their website that they do not use synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, and practice”IPM” or Integrated Pest Management to help minimize the chemical usage in their orchards. We liked that. Below are a few shots of the experience. Enjoy!
