Hope you're hungry, we're taking you on a very tasty field trip.

A trip that brought out the farmer in some very young children.

Today pre-schoolers and their mothers spent the day at the Bamboo Farm and Coastal Gardens for the 13th annual Pick Your Own Strawberries. The little ones came with their buckets and braved the warm sun as they searched through rows and rows of strawberries for the juiciest one.

"It's a real treat because you know that they are going to carry this moment with them into the future for a long time," said Bamboo Farm and Coastal Gardens Director Stephen Garton.

This Sunday, the Bamboo Farm and Coastal Gardens is holding the 13th annual Sunday Supper in the strawberry patch.
