Above: Strawberry lovers pick and chat as they go through the field at Kelley’s Berry Farm in Trousdale County on Friday morning. Owner Jon Kelley said there’s lots of demand for the fruit, which just began ripening this week. “People want to get out of the house,” he said, adding that his rows are 6-feet apart, the proper social-distancing distance. Business has been so good that he had to shut down for two days just to allow more strawberries to ripen. His 6-acre field will produce berries for the next four to five weeks, he said. The farm is located just north of the Cumberland River on the west side of U.S. 231. Right: The farm also offers already picked berries for $20 a gallon, but it sells out quickly.
