In 1956, brothers Ray and Russell Knaus begain raising strawberries together in the Redland of South Florida.
They set up a small roadside stand near the current Knaus Berry Farm location to sell their berries.
Some of their strawberries were sold through a broker who tasted the cookies made by Ray’s wife, Barbara.
He told her that they were good enough to sell.
Over the years—along with the strawberries—assorted baked goods, vegetables, and ice cream have become available for sale at Knaus Berry Farm.
Knaus Berry Farm also has U-Pick strawberries and tomatoes, availability permitting.
