Knaus Berry Farm's cinnamon rolls and strawberry milkshakes are the stuff of Dade County legend. Moms, grandpas, puppy dogs, the deeply hung-over, and everyone else under the South Florida sun has hauled it down to Homestead and waited in a seemingly endless line for the pleasure of some Knaus goodies, including U-pick strawberries, homemade breads, and fresh-picked produce. Not much has changed since the farm stand was founded in 1956 as a roadside stand where Ray and Russell Knaus sold berries. The brothers soon expanded their inventory to include pies, breads, and other baked goods when 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 has expanded to serve various other items, including fruit shakes and local vegetables, much hasn't changed in six decades. 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. Insider tip: Knaus' cinnamon rolls freeze remarkably well, so get 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.
