The Sweetest Valentine’s Day Strawberries are Locally Grown!
Sweet Pete’s, All Natural Sweet Shoppe is proud to offer All Natural, Locally Grown strawberries. Peter Behringer, founder of Sweet Pete’s believes in supporting locally owned businesses.
Sweet Pete’s is partnering with local farm, Kings Country Produce to create our All Natural Chocolate Dipped Strawberries. Kings Country, owner Tommy King says the farm has been in his family for over 40 years. Since the berries are grown in Lawtey, they are picked as close to Valentine’s Day as possible to ensure the freshest possible berry.
Sweet Pete’s chocolate dipped berries are all natural and gluten free. The dark chocolate dipped berries are also vegan. Strawberries are packed in a red box with a heart shaped window and sell for $14.00 for 8 to 10 berries. Order on line at www.sweetpete.net to schedule a pick up or delivery, call Sweet Pete’s at 904-376-7161 or stop by the shoppe to pick up your berries and other all natural sweets!
