Strawberry season has officially begun in Howard County, Maryland, and there's no better place to experience it than at Larriland Farm in Woodbine. Starting this past Tuesday and running until mid-June, the fields of Larriland Farm are brimming with juicy, red strawberries ready to be picked. As you stroll through the lush fields and the charming red barn, you'll encounter families with young children, couples, and groups of friends all reveling in the joy of selecting the perfect strawberries. Conversations about favorite recipes fill the air, from delightful tarts with Greek yogurt to homemade jams using those slightly under-ripe berries.
