Knaus Berry Farm’s cinnamon rolls and strawberry milkshakes are the stuff of Dade County legend. Everyone under the South Florida sun has trekked down to Homestead and waited in a seemingly endless line for the pleasure of U-pick strawberries, homemade breads, and fresh-picked produce. Not much here has changed since 1956, when Ray and Russell Knaus started selling berries at a roadside stand. The brothers expanded their inventory to include pies, breads, and other baked goods after a fruit broker told Ray’s wife Barbara that her cookies were good enough to sell. The farm is still run by Ray and Barbara’s children and their families. Though the bakery now serves other items, including fruit shakes and local vegetables, Knaus Berry Farm still accepts only cash and is always closed Sunday, Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day. Knaus is open from late October to mid-April annually. But the cinnamon rolls freeze remarkably well, so pick up a few dozen extra. Pop them in the oven on a Sunday morning, and they’ll instantly fill your home with the scent of cinnamon and vanilla. New Normal: Knaus’ head of operations Thomas Blocher suggests bringing an umbrella to protect you from the elements and double as an automatic social-distancing yardstick during the wait outside the bakery.
