June 3rd is Linvilla's Annual Strawberry Festival - a berry good time will be had by all ;)

One of our biggest and berry best annual June events is Linvilla Orchard's Strawberry Festival, where hundreds of berry lovers come to pick their own sun-ripened beauties or purchase them at the Farmers Market. 

Plump and sweet, throughout the county they will be popped into mouths, topped with whipped cream or baked into pies that will grace picnic tables far and wide.
Pick-Your-Own Strawberries begins at 8:00 am.  With acres of strawberries ripening under the sun, hop a Linvilla hay wagon and head for the fields to pick your own delicious, fresh strawberries.  (Or get them by the box in their market store.)

And while a strawberry may be small - Linvilla turns it into a HUGE favorite every year, baking it into something, big - really big!
Linvilla's Tyrannosaurus Rex of Strawberry Shortcakes (last year's pictured right) is homemade and will be presented at precisely 11am. Bring the whole family for a fun day of games, cooking demos, and for just $3 everybody gets a slice of strawberry heaven!

137 W Knowlton Rd, Media, PA 19063
