Mazza Fields...Forever? 

Last Thursday was close to unbearable as far as the officelife goes, with unbelievable clear blue skies making an appearance and air of 80-plus degrees Fahrenheit. A true Vermont summer day. Needless to say, the Seven Days intern squad reacted with glee when tasked with undertaking a strawberry-picking adventure at Mazza Farms. We jumped into a couple cars and madethe 15-minute drive through Winooski and out to Colchester, where Mazzacan be found on Lavigne Road.

Mazza’s Farmers Market is only the gateway to the road to the strawberry fields, where families and veterans were picking clean rows uponrows of strawberry plants. We were told the best berries were in the northern region of the field. On the way, we met up with a couple of happy faces whowere able to tell us a little more about the spirit of the fields (check out the video). We all learned something during our trek,especially regarding mutant fruit.

The intern crew was able to grab three quarts of their ownstrawberries to take home for under eight bucks. The dankness. We also stoppedin to the farmers market before leaving and found some beverages and eats made locally thatnone of us had ever heard of. Some taste testing confirmed the trip as wellworth a Thursday afternoon. When the next perfect summer day shows up,head north to Sam Mazza’s Farm and start picking.
