Father’s Day strawberry festival held in Sunderland

Franklin County

Sunderland celebrated the town’s 300th anniversary and Father’s Day with strawberries.

A strawberry festival was held at Warner Farm Sunday where a Father’s Day breakfast of pancakes and strawberry shortcake was served.

Live music, wagon rides and a playground for children were featured at the event. Guests were also able to pick their own strawberries.

22News spoke with the farm owner’s son who said now is the best time to go picking.

“It’s always a little bit tricky knowing exactly how long the strawberries are going to last but I always say if people are interested in picking strawberries they should come sooner rather than later because the season goes quick,” said David Wissemann. 

Strawberry season typically lasts through the end of June.

Warner Farm is one of the oldest and longest running family farms in New England.
