"Ton going on here. We have strawberry shortcake eating contest, we just did two rounds of that,” said Shannon Rulfs of Rulfs Orchard. “We have a pie baking competition coming up. Country Dream Farms has their horses and the wagon and they're taking people to the field to pick berries."

According to Rulfs, strawberry season lasts only two more weeks. The farm invites anyone to come have family fun and pick fresh strawberries.
