Ward's Berry Farm, located at 614 South Main St. in Sharon, is bursting with fall colors inside and out. The farm offers hayrides, a corn maze and pick your own pumpkins in the pumpkin patch. Outside you can see massive piles of bright orange pumpkins and fall plantings. Go on a hayride, run through the corn maze or go and pick your own pumpkins in the pumpkin patch. Inside you will find the freshest produce of local award winning tomatoes, corn, vegetables and a lunch bar with some of the best sandwiches. My favorite is the Monster Chicken Wrap. It's grilled chicken in a spinach wrap with avocado, tomato, Muenster cheese and shallot mustard. We want to know what your favorite sandwich is? Let us know in the comments section.

Pick your own strawberry season started today.
Ward's Berry Farm's strawberry fields were populated with people with baskets today. About 10 days earlier than usual at the Sharon landmark. Ward's pick your own strawberry season started ahead of schedule today due to the warm early 2012 weather, said Bob Ward, whose family owns and operates the farm. As a result, "our pick your own season is going to be more limited, probably," Ward said. "We're going to have a good strawberry season, but a great season otherwise for peaches, blueberries, corn and tomatoes," he said. Ward's will try to offer weekend hours for pick your own strawberries, and "probably play it by ear from there," Ward said. The next pick your own strawberries day is Sunday, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Bird demand leaves some consumers beating the bushes.
Jim Ward ordered about 245 fresh Thanksgiving turkeys this season and had no leftovers. So, responding to the demand, Ward's Berry Farm ordered about 20 more on Friday. "Unfortunately, we're only putting people on our waiting list from this point on," said Ward, whose family owns the South Main Street farm. Thirteen turkeys were left as of Monday afternoon. Sharon's Ward's and Crescent Ridge Dairy both are selling fresh turkeys for Thanksgiving. That's because consumers are beating the bushes looking for a bird in the hand. For the first time, "to see how it will work," Crescent Ridge offered, only to its online customers, 35 fresh turkeys from Misty Knoll Farms in Vermont, Crescent Ridge Sales and Marketing Manager Brad Pond says. "Fresh …
