Consumers, Legend Hills Orchards crop of strawberries are now ready for picking. For those of you who make fresh jam and strawberry pies this is the way to go. I haven't been happy with the strawberries I have found in the grocery chains this season. They are located in Licking County 1 mile south of Utica, Ohio on Reynolds Road. Their Farm Market is open year round. Their 2008 peach crop will be available beginning the last week of July through the month of August. To get a schedule of their crop dates for their peaches, plums. strawberries and apples go to their website at For now happy shopping!
