Saturday Sweets: One More Week to Get Your Hands on Knaus Berry Farm Cinnamon Rolls
Spring is here, but that also means the end of one of our favorite seasons in Miami — Knaus Berry Farm season. The delicious farm in Homestead is only open from the end of October to the middle of April during the Redland farming season.
Every Miamian knows the value of the trek to Homestead and the long lines that surround the infamous Knaus Berry Farm cinnamon rolls. The family owned and operated farm has been in business since 1956 and seems to get more popular every year. Hundreds of people stand in line for six months out of the year to snag a dozen (or two) cinnamon rolls fresh out of the oven. There’s something so satisfying about the sticky pillows of dough and there’s only one week left to get your Knaus Berry Farm fix.
Here’s how to handle it like a pro:
- Bring cash: Credit cards aren’t accepted here.
- Stop in early afternoon: This may not work as well on the last week of the season, but typically if you want to avoid lines it’s best to go around 11:30am on Tuesday or Wednesday. Contrary to popular belief — there isn’t always a line.
- Order a shake: Everyone knows the shake line is shorter than the cinnamon roll line. Grab yourself a shake and enjoy it while waiting for the main event.
- Stock up on jams: Cinnamon rolls aren’t the only coveted treat at Knaus Berry. The farm store also sells pies, cheesecakes, jams, dinner rolls, and fresh produce.
- Buy in bulk: Protip - the cinnamon rolls freeze really well! Don’t be afraid to buy a couple dozen to take home. Pop them in the oven for a few minutes when a craving hits and you’re all set. No line needed.
Knaus Berry Farm is open from 8am to 5:30pm every day except Sundays. The 2017-2018 season ends on April 21st, so make your plans to stock up with enough goodness to last through the summer.
