I finally went strawberry picking! (This has been a silly dream of mine.) I've been inhaling this jam from Gizdich Ranch for the past few months. Little did I know, their farm was close by! It is in Watsonville- a few exits past Santa Cruz. At the Ranch, you can go strawberry picking, shop for jam, and eat some of tastiest pie.
A few tips: Wear a hat (it gets hot out there), there are a lot of bees in the strawberry fields so just be prepard for that, and go during a time when you'll actually want to eat pie!
