How To Celebrate National Strawberry Day The Right Way With Georgia Strawberries

Georgians want pretty strawberries. Farm’d is providing with direct access to the most beautiful Georgia-grown strawberries in the state.

Americans everywhere have been waiting on the edges of their seat for today to come -it’s National Strawberry Day! With three billion dollars being spent on strawberries annually, we definitely agree that it’s high time we celebrate.

Strawberries in the States may not even have a high bar to reach to sell to eager consumers -the California Strawberry Commission points out that shoppers prefer a pretty strawberry over a delicious one. With price and appearance being the primary considerations, consumers have their eyes on picture-worthy fruits that are inexpensive... and if they happen to taste great, that is a plus.

Georgia is now headed into strawberry season so keep an eye on this popular fruit. It will be available for you to buy fresh from the Farm’d platform the instant they’re picked. We’re sending love to the north and south Farm’d community, where farms are picking and preparing to deliver strawberries to your doors in the next few weeks.. Here are some tips for taking good care of your Georgia-fresh berries.

Strawberry Care and Preparation

Interestingly enough, a study from Humboldt University in Berlin is informing farmers and buyers to keep an eye on their strawberry packaging. A package made from plastic with divets and grooves can pressure the fruit and lead to its injury. Instead, reach for mesh baskets to keep the strawberry color consistent and stable.

Strawberries will last an entire week at cooler temperatures and you can enjoy the berries for up to a year after freezing them, so be sure to utilize the berry in all types of meals. Here are a few of our favorites.

Strawberry Lemonade

Make this drink for a midday refresher, or make a pitcher for a get together.

Strawberry Shrimp Ceviche

Balance a spicy ceviche with the fresh sweetness of diced and pureed strawberries.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Because the simplicity that adding a sweet hard texture to a perfectly pink strawberry can’t be beaten.

Don’t forget about the $200 we’re giving you off your order, chef. If you’re not part of the Farm’d community and want to celebrate National Strawberry day, join Farm’d today and prepare your account to buy the best strawberries in the state.
