Play nice guys...

…because it’s Woolly and Jeff for the next two weeks!

I’ll be working with the farming end of the family peddling strawberries at the Florida Strawberry Festival in Plant City, and will only be able to post the Pics of the Day.

If any Floridian's are going, stop by the Parkesdale Farms booth in the Roy and Helen Parke Building by Gate 9 and say hi!

Here’s some pics of our booth at last years’ festival. See you in 11 days!

Just getting ready to close up for the night. Lauren, my daughter, looks bored!


The throne...several marriage proposals have been made here!


Our famous strawberry shortcake, the best in the world. Our milkshakes were voted the best by the Food Network!

Love fresh picked local Strawberries. But we still have a bit of a wait here in Oregon, and the berries are much smaller.

Thought you might be interested in how the festival is going...Hope everyone is being good for the guys!

I need to soak my feet, someone to massage my back, a hot wax hand dip and I can't seem to find my mind anywhere. Only 6 more days to go!

Here's some pics of festival folks...enjoy:

This is our display of fresh picked Parkesdale Farms berries that won 1st Place in the best booth contest!


"Cappers" go backstage to every musical performer at the festival!


Our beautiful strawberry plants for sale at $6.95 each!


Festival goers waiting in line to sit in the strawberry throne!


The line to make your own strawberry shortcake sponsored by a local church:


Pretty local girls enjoying their shortcake!


A happy little guy showing off his winnings at the go fish pond!


JT, former US Air Force moving the berries!


The end of a long day at the Florida Strawberry Festival!

That is Berry Impresive! Wow MK....your family must be the Strawberry Cartel of Florida, and all this time I just thought that you guys grew Oranges

We have lots of Strawberries here as well. The big guys in California are called Driscolls Farms. @Dave54, wouldn't be surprised if Driscolls was in Oregon as well.
