Berry Picking Anyone?

Members and friends of Slow Food Northern Ohio are invited to an impromptu raspberry picking outing this Saturday, October 20. Yes, raspberries in October!

Rosby's Berry Farm in Brooklyn Heights will have berries available until the first hard frost. As long as that doesn't happen between now and Saturday, we'll be there. So, order that latte to go on Saturday morning and join us.

Rosby's also offers pre-picked berries and their garden center has a variety of fall pumpkins including culinary Fairytale pumpkins. Mums, squash and gourds are for sale as well as cornstalks, baled hay and other fall decorating items.

Date: Saturday, October 20
Time: 10:00 a.m.
Location: Rosby's Berry Farm, 42 Schaff Road, Brooklyn Heights. We'll meet at the berry tent inside Rosby's Garden Center.
