Strawberries with the Seewalds

 
Reagan Family Farm in Fayetteville

Is it strawberry season yet in your neck of the woods? It is in Northwest Arkansas! The Seewalds went picking today at Reagan Family Farm in Fayetteville and returned home with five pounds of berries.

  1. I love strawberries but never pick them. I'm sure the kids had lots of fun picking strawberries. Jessa and Ben you have beautiful children and you seem like great parents. Can't wait to see if no. 4 is a boy or girl.God bless your family.

  4. Strawberry picking is fun! I'm glad they are making special memories together!🍓🍓🍓

  5. Absolutely precious! I am wishing for another girl for them this summer so Ivy isn't the only girl.

  7. Awe, what a cute photo of: Spurgeon, Henry, & Ivy!!!!!!

  8. The things she gets Ivy to cooperate with doing at barely 2 is just amazing to me. I have to basically chase my 2.5 year old around to even get a picture of her lol

  9. Aw, Ivy's lost that baby look. Definitely reminds me of Jessa.

  10. End of June. Tradition here, people go berry picking over the July 1st holiday.

  11. I'd like to know how the Seewalds justify patronizing a business owned by people with completely opposing (to the Seewalds) political and social views. Maybe some things don't matter to the Seewalds when there are strawberries to be eaten? Or has Jessa broken away from her family's business patronage practices? Now that would be newsworthy (and I hope it's the case).

    1. ??? Why would that matter? They were picking strawbeeires on a farm, not voting for a polticial candidate.

    2. Since when can you not visit/busy things from a farm whose owners you don't agree with?

    3. Christians are called to be a light in the darkness. Jesus ate at the home of a tax collector and ministered to a Samaritan woman at the well.

    4. Oh brother 🙄

    5. Interesting observation OP. I've also noticed how the Duggars align themselves with businesses that have their same religious and political views. The owners of this farm don't fit that mold. I don't know what the explanation is.

      Delete
    6. Really? That is really nit-picking.

      Delete
    7. So we're not supposed to buy anything without first checking out the owner's political, social and religious views? We can only patronize and buy things from businesses that match our views? Are you serious? That seems very onerous and unnecessary IMO.

      Delete
    8. I know the Duggars like businesses with similar beliefs (ie Chick-fil-A and Hobby Lobby). But how do you know that the owners of this farm do NOT share the same beliefs? Do they publicize their values and lifestyle openly on social media for you to be able to determine that?

      Delete
    9. I don't think it's nit picking, I think it's a legitimate question. It's something on the show that stood out. Conservative Christian businesses were highly featured as were businesses owned by (church) friends of the family. When the kids got their own social media, that definitely continued. It sure looks like conscious choices. So is this something the Duggar parents teach, to screen the places you do business with? That would answer @4:38's and @4:40's questions.

      Delete
    10. Wow, I didn't know you were supposed to research personal opinions of a business before shopping there. I think if I did that I could find a fault with every place I go. Why can't people just appreciate the updates, enjoy the pictures of these beautiful little ones and not be so negative.

      Delete
    11. 8:49, it's getting harder and harder to do that actually, as more and more companies are getting involved in issues that some of are morally opposed to.

      Delete
    12. @8:49 So, you've checked out the religious or political affiliation of this berry farm?

      Delete
    13. Thank you Anonymous 4:46 for speaking truth. God bless you

      Delete
    14. Goodness me.

      The obsession some have with criticizing every thing they do is nuts.

      Surprised there are more rants on the kids not wearing masks.


      Look for the goodness of family bonding in this instead of needing to bring up politics. Bbn

    15. We should all be selective where our money is spent. If you don't, you never know what sorts of things or organizations your money might be bankrolling.

      Delete
    16. @9:37 and @4:27 If you want to be a responsible consumer in today's world then yes, that's what you do. Otherwise you could be funding something you would never contribute to outright, if you only look at the storefront. Social media has made it easier to research, and business license/LLC owners are always registered. You might be surprised at how businesses these days are very aware of their public image and how their consumers feel. Most companies have wonderful social consciousnesses and support very worthy causes. Those that don't, it's your choice not to support.

      Delete
    17. 9:47- how do you know about the political or religious preference of the strawberry farm? I picked strawberries last year, and all that mattered to me was that the berries were good, the picking set-up wasn’t too difficult, and the price was fair. I certainly didn’t ask them when I called who they voted for, what church/temple they attend; if they were gay or straight; or if they were black or white. Maybe the Seewalds just wanted a nice, safe place with good strawberries to bring their kids to.

      Delete
    18. I can't imagine doing business with any establishment without knowing who they are or what they stand for and support. It's a consumer's responsibility to look beyond the pretty marketing and find the truth.

      Delete
    19. So, two things here from reading the responses to the original comment (Anonymous @ 9:47). First, posters here are correct. The Duggars, both on the show and in their books, have indeed spoken often about choosing to do business with and promote/support businesses that align with their beliefs. Secondly, then how does the Duggar family (Jim & Michelle, as well as all the married Duggars) justify doing business with and promoting/supporting TLC... who not only fail to align with their beliefs, but actively promote the destruction of those beliefs? I'd like someone to address this logically, without using the "God gave us a platform" angle because Jesus wasn't in a business relationship with either the woman at the well or Zaccheus, nor being paid by either one. He wasn't on the Romans' payroll either.

    20. Do YOU only buy food grown by farmers who agree with you?

      Delete
    21. @12:57 Yes, when given the chance to understand who I'm buying from, I would definitely not fund a place that supports issues I don't agree with. You can check out small family farms like this one beforehand. With supermarkets, you can look into the company's history of fair labor practices and see what kind of charity partners they are with the community. My store shows the names and locations of where they get their local produce, which is nice. You can also skip the need for a farm and grow some of your own food in your back yard the way many of us do.

      Delete
    22. What objectional associations does this particular strawberry farm have?

      Delete
    23. Only in the land of plenty would we engage in this sort of game. In poor regions of the world people are struggling to survive and don't question the personal beliefs of the makers and sellers of the necessities of life.

      Delete
    24. 9:47, 9:29, 5:17 and others -- Do you go to the supermarket armed with information about the farmer who grew the zucchini and the lettuce? Do you buy breakfast cereal, much of which contains glyphosate? Do you ask the butcher who raised the cattle before you buy steaks? What about the gas you put into your car. How much do you know about the oil companies? (Hint -- It's all bad.) Unless you're one of the groups that grows your own food from your own seed, doesn't buy any commercial food, digs your own well for groundwater, and doesn't use electricity or gasoline, then you should have the courage of your convictions and see this position to its logical end in your own lives before criticizing a sweet family who took their adorable kids to pick strawberries on a family farm. Good grief!

      Delete
    25. So if there is no strawberry farmers in your area that agree with your views, you family can not have fresh local berries....that's just weird.

      Delete
    26. How does the farmer's political, social and religious views affect his/her crop? I don't know how to tell when I'm buying fruit at the grocery so just choose the best looking fruits and vegetables.

      Delete
    27. Anonymous @ 7:31 here, not sure if the question at 12:57 was for me or not, but I'll take a crack at it. I live in a heavily Mennonite region and having had Mennonite friends in the past, no I don't agree with every single belief that religion teaches. But I have no issue buying things at a few select local Mennonite-owned businesses. I've known the owners for years and we have a personal relationship. They have a very good work ethic and I receive quality goods, with good customer service. I've bought meat from farmers whose political and religious views I definitely do not share. I think when Jesus said "Go into all the world and make disciples of all men.", he kind of meant my own little corner of the world, my community too.

      Delete
    28. 5:17, seriously? You would check the political credentials of a farm before you went there? Who has time to check every single place you do business with? The dry cleaner? Every gas station you go to?

      Delete
    29. I see some of you get it and some don't. If you've never thought before of what you're buying and who you're buying it from, maybe you will now. Ever hear of boycotts? That's how we in the "land of plenty" tell a business we won't support them for some justified reason. If it means we go without something, then we should be strong enough to do that. On the other hand, when we find a business that's wonderful for all the right reasons, we absolutely support them by buying from them.

      Delete
    30. It is each individual's responsibility as a citizen and a parent (if you are one) to educate themselves and to be informed in order to make the best decisions for family and community. Blindly going through life uninformed and ignorant is not a smart way to live. Smart decisions lead to betterment of oneself and one's world.

      Delete
    31. So many companies have gotten into controversy these days with what they post on social media. It's not hard to do a little background checking and looking beyond what you see in the store window. Companies should be held responsible for what they do, say, and what they support. As consumers, we have the final say, or if you want to call it "the vote," by where we shop. There are certain restaurants, stores, and gas companies I won't buy from because I don't agree with their policies. It may be harder on me to pass those up and spend elsewhere, but it's important so I do it.

      Delete
    32. 8:32, I do boycott certain companies who have made it known they support things I don't. But I also don't have the time to research every single place I might stop at.

      Delete
    33. If I find out that a business supports a candidate or a cause that I don't, that's it - I don't do business with them. I thought the Duggars felt the same way, from everything we've seen on 19KAC and CO.

      Delete
    34. @3:06 If the Seewalds had taken the time to research this farm they might have picked berries elsewhere.

      Delete
    35. @7:31 TLC aligns with their beliefs? Judging by many of their shows, I don't think so. I'm surprised like-minded Christian followers tune in at all. Watching the Duggar show is supporting all the content TLC has to offer, regardless of whether or not you agree with it.

      Delete
    36. Anonymous @ 5:30- You clearly misread my post. "Secondly, then how does the Duggar family (Jim & Michelle, as well as all the married Duggars) justify doing business with and promoting/supporting TLC... who not only FAIL TO ALIGN with their beliefs, but actively promote the destruction of those beliefs?". I watch nothing on TLC.

      Delete
    37. 3:01, I still think it's a little ludicrous to act high and mighty because they didn't stop to research the background of a strawberry farm's owners.

      Delete
    38. @8:45 My apologies. My reponse was meant for another comment. I agreed with yours.

      Delete
    39. 4:14 - you summed it up in a nutshell. It is very ludicrous that people are acting high and mighty in judgement.

  13. Sounds like they had a fun day. Spurgeon, Henry, and Ivy are growing up so fast.

  14. They sure are growing up fast! Personally, I would cut the boys' hair. Too long in front and up top for me and too hot in summertime.

    1. But as they are not your children your opinion is irrelevant. It is not acceptable to comment negatively on childrens' physical appearance.

    2. Oh no. I love, love their curly hair. And why would the boys feel any warmer than their sister? You didn’t mention cutting her hair.

      Delete
    3. I've seen Spurgeon push the curls out of his eyes when he was sweaty. They don't make barrettes for boys,it would be cool if they would cut the curls some on his forehead.

      Delete
    4. This is the OP. Everyone's opinion matters. We are all entitled to our opinions and to voicing them. I said nothing negative. I only voiced my opinion. I didn't mention cutting the girl's hair because her's is not long or near as thick as the boys' hair.

      Delete
    5. Yes, those poor boys are always trying to get their hsir out of their eyes!

      Delete
    6. Jessa and Ben can make their own decisions for their sons. I think the long-on-top hair is awesome on boys. Pretty soon the boys will be old enough to give their opinions.

      Delete
    7. All six of my nephews were blessed with their parents thick, curly hair and as "cute" as it was, it was definitely too hot for them (especially on their foreheads) in the summer heat. They were all so excited the summer they finally got buzz cuts! LOL Three out of four of the grandparents weren't too thrilled, but six boys and a Granddaddy were!

      Delete
    8. @7:06 Unsolicited personal opinions about the appearance of others, how long their hair is, etc. don't matter in the least. They only matter to the person giving them.

    6. A tip for 8:12 - not all opinions need snide comebacks either. Really, you couldn't let that go by without commenting? I thought that was a refreshing comment from 1:31 because I've never even thought about it, but he/she may be right. Sometimes I add something to berries and sometimes I don't. I don't know which I prefer but maybe I should make up my mind sometime.

      Delete
    7. @1:31 I bet you're a real delight at a party!

    8. I think it depends on the strawberry. Some are sweet enough as is, but some look great on the outside, are white and sour on the inside, and need something else to help them out. Ever bit into a good looking strawberry only to be disappointed?

      Delete
    9. 8:38 - you are so right. I’ve bitten into what looks like a juicy sweet strawberry to find it very “woody.” I say - Don’t judge a strawberry by its cover 😏

      Delete
    10. @8:06 I think the point being lost here is that posting an opinion is one thing, but stating it with a passive agressive put-down of someone else's opinion is a snide thing to do. Saying you'd "ruin" berries with ice cream is an example. Just keep it civil and say you "prefer" this or that. For the life of me, I cannot understand why so many people have to snipe and bicker over the most inconsequential things! Just be kind- isn't that what Jesus is all about?

      Delete
    11. That is one of spring's cruelest tricks, to make strawberries bright red on the outside and pale white on the inside.

  24. I hope they paid for the ones the kids ate. Farmers work hard to cultivate those berries, and they don't make any money by giving them away. What's "cute" to patrons is far less cute to the farmers.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Perhaps I missed it somewhere in the post that said the children were eating the strawberries before they were paid for.

      Delete
    2. @11:10, where I go with my kids, the farmer says: eat as much as you can, I prefer to see them all over kids faces than in the garbage. Don't worry, they price them so we pay for the ones we eat. It's part of the business ;)

      Delete
    3. By the looks of the filth on their boots, I hope they didn't eat anything that grew close to that ground.

      Delete
    4. Why do you assume they would steal berries? I’m flabbergasted that anyone would look at this photo and think to post such a mean-spirited comment.

      Delete
    5. That's pretty assuming that the kids were eating them. Perhaps they were taught that they are not allowed to eat any until they get home and washed them off first. That's what we did when I was young.

      Delete
    6. So what if they eat a few berries while they were picking them? The farmer expects that and prices the berries accordingly. My grandparents had a farm and when we helped pick fruit and vegetables we always ate some. No one minded.

      Delete
    7. Going around assuming the worst of people seems like an unhealthy way to live.

      Delete
    8. I sure hope they didn't eat anything right there in the field. We had an Ecoli outbreak here from berries eaten at a pick-it-yourself strawberry farm.

      Delete
    9. @6:30 PM you do realize most vegetables and some fruits are right next to the ground. In fact all plants grow from dirt or filth as you put it. That's why you wash them first.

      Delete
    10. It’s a picture of adorable children loving life. Can’t we just comment on that? I don’t get it.

      Delete
    11. imo, they did look like they had eaten some strawberries. Look at their mouths close up. I don't think they would have eaten them without permission.

      Delete
    12. @11:45 That's exactly how you survive, especially if you live in a big city where there's always someone ready to take advantage of someone else. God gave us the ability to be skeptical for good reason.

    13. @3:49 That's exactly why you don't let your kids eat berries in the field at a you-pick farm. Not for price consideration but for health consideration.

    14. 11:10 -- You sound so negative. WOW.

    15. @12:59 How would you feel if you made your living selling strawberries but every customer turned your farm into an all-you-can-eat-for-free buffet?

      Delete
    16. Such joy-sucking comments. Why are we zooming in on pictures to examine their mouths, anyway? Or excusing the accusation of children under the guise of "God-given skepticism"?

      Delete
    17. 9:43, the Bible actually talks about one characteristic of love being "thinketh no evil." Or in other words, not thinking the worst of a person. Yes, being wise is a God-given ability, but not going around thinking the worst of everyone.

      Delete
    18. @9:53 The Bible also tells us many places to be careful and not to fall into anyone's trap. That means thinking carefully and being cautious with your trust.

    3. Girls always used to pick berries wearing skirts.

    4. If it were down around her ankles, I’d agree. As it is, it’s way above the knees over leggings. Sounds like you were just looking for a bone to pick.

    5. In her way of what? It looks like a long shirt, over pants to me. Cute too.

      Delete
    6. She is a girl, that's why she wore her cute dress!

      Delete
    7. I think the poster was referring to the cut, fit, and fabric weight of the dress (the waistline is unnaturally too high and doesn't sit flat to begin with; there isn't enough distance between the waistline and the stiff overly-ruffled armholes to allow free and frequent reaching arm movements without being uncomfortable, the fabric is heavier weight and doesn't lend itself easily to movement). It's pretty likely, judging just by the standing photo shot that due to all of the above, as Ivy leaned over to pick, the waistline of the dress inched up and the skirt sort of "ballooned " up in front of her-which would be annoying to anyone, much less a little girl. It's not about a girl wearing a dress or her wearing a dress to pick strawberries. LOL

    11. 12:59, either trolls or people with way too much time on their hands!

    12. @1:00- Uhm, my life is way too busy to analyze what people dress their children in. LOL I just happened to have made a lot of my child's clothes when she was a toddler and was taught to sew and check fabric weight/drape (and the fit of the garment) by my sewing instructor. So yes, I can tell a fair amount about a fabric, by the way it drapes and hangs. FYI: I only responded because people were mocking the original post and were maybe misunderstanding what was actually being communicated and thought maybe a little more information could help. *Sheesh* So quick to judge and mock here.

  28. Kids sure change. Spurgeon was a mini Jessa. I still a lot of her in him. I am also seeing a bit more of Ben's father as well. Ivy is looking more like her grandmother Michelle. Henry seems to be the most like Ben's mom. I am sure they must have had a great time.

    1. Maybe because she's busy being pregnant and raising 3 kids. Or maybe because she's too upset about her brother's situation. Or maybe she just doesn't want to. We've seen her pregnant 3 times already. Why do we need to see it again? Or at all?

    2. Her inlaws did.

    3. Maybe common sense took over and she realizes that posting selfies in front of a mirror is rather juvenile. With three small kids, she likely doesn’t have the time.

  36. Well, the comments have thoroughly dissected the appropriateness of the child's dress, the possible objectionable associations of the berry farm, how to eat strawberries, the horrendous possiblity that the Seewald kids ate some berries while picking them and how unhealthy that is (God help me, I've done this very thing many times in my 67 years of life and never got sick and never mind that farmers figure in the cost of grazing customers in the price of the berries.) What's next? Whether or not they're wearing sunscreen or maybe didn't pick the berries in the proper way? Miserable people tend to find fault with EVERYTHING!

    1. I know. My grandparents had a farm. When we visited them, we ate stuff from the garden, the berry bushes and the fruit trees. Never thought that the stuff needed to be washed or was "filthy". None of us got sick from eating fresh fruit. I well remember the cherry tomatoes. I wouldn't eat them after they were brought inside. They were so much better right off the vines.

    2. Right? It would be interesting to see what would happen if one of us posted a picture of our family and let everyone else pick it apart.

    3. You can't equate what happened on a farm decades ago with what's happening on farms these days. There have been many outbreaks of food poisoning from fresh produce. Farming practices have changed and cross-contamination happens. There are frequent produce recalls: Lettuce, onions, tomatoes, apples, watermelon, squash, mushrooms, bean sprouts, peanuts... Even herbs like basil have been recalled.

    4. @5:28 That's not going to happen because the rest of us don't need publicity for a living, we have jobs for that.

    5. 4:21, people post pictures of their families on social media all the time, actually.

    6. 8:53 Difference is that most people don't do it because they have to remain public figures, have books to sell, have a TV show to promote, etc.

    7. 5:49, completely irrelevant from my original comment, which was that if any of us posted a picture of our families that it would be interesting to see what other people comment.

    8. Reminds of the time my daughter's Kindergarten teacher took the kids to the dairy farm so they could about where milk came from. Most of the kids stopped drinking milk because they were appalled to discover milk came out of cows, not a container from the grocery store. lol

  40. Really love the innocence of this picture and hope they had an absolutely awesome time and enjoyed every last strawberry they picked. Many thanks to the farm families that make family moments like these possible and work hard to feed the rest of us year round! Hats off to our farmers!
