About a month ago, just as summer started here in NZ, I went to a local strawberry farm that are famous for their freshly grown produce and there AMAZING homemade strawberry ice creams!
And as you all know by know, I LIVE for ice cream!!!
The farm is located in the rural / suburb of Mangere in South Auckland and I kid you not it is always packed!
Here's some photo's of my experience...
|They have acres of land that grow anything and everything from their delish strawberries and veges!|
|It was around 10 or 11am and the place was slowly getting busy|
|They not only make ice cream cones but also pancakes, sundaes and milkshakes!|
|How it's made|
|The sheer deliciousness!!!! I had a bite of the top as you can see :P|
This place is worth going to when the fruit is in season!
I paid only $3.80 for a waffle cone and the photo above does it no justice as it was much bigger than that (obviously!).
They have a seating area outside with umbrellas so you can enjoy the lovely summer breeze and also the produce that was purchased.
I ended up buying some freshly grown carrots, radishes and peas that tasted nothing like what you buy in the grocery store but better!
Would I recommend this place?
If you're not sure how to get there you can find out here, and if you're reading this from overseas then this would be one reason to visit New Zealand :-)
I'll be visiting the farm this week and will be purchasing a punnet to make a beautiful vanilla, strawberry and nectarine tart so watch this space :-)
