Mary Burr of Burr's Berry Farm Knows Strawberries
Mary Burr, the Strawberry Queen, of Burr's Berry Farm is a real cool Dade County farm lady. When I told her her strawberries were going to the kitchen of Michael's Genuine Food and Drink in the Design District she said "Well, he knows what good strawberries should be."
"I been here since 1936. My husband was born here, before there were roads here. The change here from agricultural to residential is wrong, it shouldnt've happened. Time marches on, and not always for the better. There's no substitute for good strawberries. They should've known that all along."
Burr's Berry Farm is located at 12741 SW 216 St. and is open between Christmas and Mother's Day. Click here for more information.
