HOMESTEAD (CBSMiami) — It’s the day many South Floridians have been waiting for. The day the famous Knaus Berry Farm reopens and begins selling its gooey, warm cinnamon rolls and so much more.
The farm reopened Tuesday at 8:00 a.m. but hours earlier, before the sun came up, dozens of cinnamon lovers lined up outside the South Florida landmark waiting anxiously for those mouth watering, warm rolls.
“We’ve been doing this for many years but this is the first time my daughter and I came here at 4:30 a.m,” said Maria Rodriguez one of the first people in line.
In addition to their famous and delicious cinnamon rolls, Knaus Berry Farm is also known for their delicious milkshakes, smoothies, pies, and strawberries, among other things.
The farm always closes for the summer and reopens at the end of October.
During the season, folks drive from miles around to get their fresh baked items at their Homestead spot at 15980 SW 248th Street.
The self-pick strawberry field should be ready in December.
Knaus Berry Farm is entered on the National Culinary Heritage Register, which lists the country’s most enduring food destinations.
The family owned and operated Knaus Berry Farm has been operating since 1956.
“We try to build into all our staff to take ownership and put out a quality product, it is important to us,” explained Thomas Blocher, Manager and Partner of Knaus Berry Farm.
Before you go, remember that Knaus only accepts cash and and is closed Sundays.
The farm is also closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day.
Cinnamon rolls cost $11 for a dozen, $5.90 for a half-dozen, or $1.25 each. Pecan rolls cost $13.75 for a dozen.
