On Saturday, May 25th, Bobola Farm and Florist was home to the 14th Annual Delaware Young Farmers and Ranchers (YF&R) Strawberry Festival. Attendees from across the state enjoyed an afternoon filled with fun activities and delicious strawberries.

YF&R served pulled pork sandwiches and hot dogs donated by Haass’ Butcher Shop, alongside ice cream donated by Woodside Farm Creamery and the famous strawberry shortcake. The shortcakes were made by Skyline Café using strawberries donated by Fifer Orchards.

This free event welcomed the whole family, though KidZone wristbands were available for only $6, with a $1 discount for those who brought a non-perishable food item. Thanks to this initiative, 65 pounds of food were donated to the Food Bank of Delaware as part of the Harvest for All campaign.

The KidZone was full of fun activities, including a barrel train, bounce house, petting zoo, and numerous yard games. The festival also featured live music, adding to the lively atmosphere.

Mollie Lynch, Delaware Young Farmers and Ranchers Chair, said “It was a wonderful day! It was great to see so many families come out and enjoy the day with us.”
