***** Knaus Berry Farm, 15980 Southwest 248th Street, Homestead, Florida 33031, (305)247-0668.
Taken from Knaus Berry Farm website (www.knausberryfarm.com):

I’m gonna assume that you guys have been to farm-joints like Knaus Berry Farm. You know- a bit hokey, a bit touristy, a bit folksy! You know, a Jimmy Stewart- Mr. Smith Goes To Washington kinda-feel!
Let me wrap this up for you…
Personally- Jeff Eats is too old for Knaus’ U-Pick Strawberries “thing”–that said, Knaus makes some of the most delicious cinnamon rolls that Jeff Eats has ever eaten, same goes for its strawberry milkshakes. Trust me, the cinnamon rolls and milkshakes–are worth the drive (assuming you don’t live in Homestead) alone- to Homestead.
You can check www.knausberryfarm.com for menu/prices/other info.
Knaus Berry Farm is open Monday-Saturday 8am-5:30pm, closed on Sunday…
A word to the wise, before you go “running” there-check Knaus’ planting schedule-or whatever it’s called- to make sure Knaus got what you want- to make sure the joint (farm) is even open!
One other thing, don’t think that this is an “undiscovered” deal–this joint is a freaking goldmine, with lines literally out the door all the time!
