Nothing Says Spring like Daffodils in Bloom

It’s that time of year again Beaufort…U-pick Daffodil Day at the Farm on Cane Island, owned by the estate of John and Flora Trask. Dr. Clark Trask and his wife, Evy and Mary Trask and her husband, DJ Henry coordinated this year’s Daffodil Festival, and it’s sure to be a memorable event for the entire family.

 

 

Each year, the Trask family opens the farm to the public and allows children of all ages to pick daffodils. Locally, it’s the Lowcountry introduction to Spring. When the daffodils arrive, barefoot weather is around the corner.

 

Cousins, Clark and Mary Trask, along with their spouses, Evy Trask and DJ Henry have organized a day of family fun. The farm will be open from 11am-4pm on Saturday, March 5.  Cost is $10 per person, and children under 12 are free. Hot dogs and soft drinks will be on sale, and live music will be provided. Proceeds will benefit Beaufort Academy, Friends of Caroline Hospice, New Plays Festival of the Lowcountry, the Beaufort County Open Land Trust and Riverview Charter School. Contributions are welcome.

 

Be sure to bring your 5-gallon buckets and definitely your camera. And just a hint to the kids…your teachers will love a nice surprise on Monday morning. Daffodils make everyone smile.
