Stock up on flowers for your garden.  There are so many types of plants to choose from.

panning for gemsSpecial events happen throughout the growing season, from the Spring Harvest Fest which features the early strawberries to the Fall Fest where you can pick your own pumpkins.

While at the farm you can participate in fun activities like panning for gemstones at the sluice.  Purchase a bag of mining rough and let the water from the authentic mining sluice do the hard work.  As the water rushes over your panning tray the dirt will be removed and what is revealed are beautiful gemstones and minerals!  You keep what you find.  Every bag is different, so you never know what you will get!  This is just one of the fun things you can do when you visit the farm.  There are many more.

Find out about the others as well as info on school tours by visiting the Chesterfield Berry Farm web site.
