Best Bucks County strawberries

Bruce hellerick and Big Strawberry

The Hellerick family prides itself on having the tastiest strawberries in Bucks County, Pennsylvania at their farm near Doylestown. And your correspondent is not one to gainsay them. Along with the weather, Bruce Hellerick attributes tasty strawberries to the farm's exceptional soil, "Abington silt loam.. a good combination of sand, silt and clay" that has a lot of nutrients and micro-nutrients and holds moisture well. Paul Hellerick says a lot of sun in the springtime contributed to the sweetness of the berries. Although the berries were not as plump as we would have liked when we visited, rains that followed our visit likely plumped them up nicely for the next wave of families! Watch video here.
