Towers Family Farm Berry Picking Event and Recipe

The Towers Family Farm located here in Palatka, FL is a great place to go to if you want to hand pick your own berries, including both strawberries and blueberries. This season is an especially great time to go berry picking. As someone who went personally, I can say that their strawberries are fresh and delicious.

This past Saturday, the towers family farm hosted an event called the U-Pick Fest. There, people were able to pick blueberries, strawberries, and enjoy numerous fun attractions like pony rides, hay rides, a bouncy house, rock climbing, and face painting. There were also many local craft vendors, and multiple food trucks, allowing you to eat to your heart’s desire! This event is a great place to go to with your family and friends, and allows you to connect with others in your community.

I hope this article pushed you into attending this event next time and I hope to see you there!

Recipe For Strawberry Milkshakes

*The serving size for this exact recipe is around 4 people but you can alter it to your liking


  • 20 small strawberries
  • 5-6 scoops of vanilla ice cream
  • 6 cups of milk
  • 1/2 cup of sugar(add however much you like/optional)


Now this recipe is not an established recipe, it’s a recipe that me and my family just came up with on the spot. The milkshake was very refreshing and sweet and I would definitely recommend you to try it out sometime.

Hello, my name is Sophia, I am a sophomore this year. I joined Golden Times in my freshman year and I had a great time. I enjoy painting, writing, and cooking. However when it comes to cooking, eight out of ten times the end result comes out decent. Even though I'm not the best at cooking, I hope to improve on my skills. As mentioned before, I enjoy writing both in and out of school. I hope to have a great time this year along with everyone else! -"A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new."-Albert Einstein
