Knaus Berry Farms Closes Three Weeks Early

“It just seems like the socially responsible thing to do.”

There’s some bad news for sticky bun lovers. Longstanding sticky bun outpost — which famously has lines that can cause hour or longer waits — and fruit stand, Knaus Berry Farm (15980 SW 248th Street) has closed up shop three weeks early due to precautions around the novel coronavirus outbreak.

It took to Facebook to announce its early closure.

”The 2019-20 season has been good. We want to thank everyone who helped make that possible! Lord willing we will see for the 2020-21 season. It is with sadness that we announce that we will be closed for the summer after today (3 weeks early). It just seems like the socially responsible thing to do. Be smart, be safe and don’t forget to wash your hands!”

Knaus Berry is traditionally open from October to the end of April every year. It’s a popular spot for its unique Amish-style cinnamon rolls and strawberry milkshakes. Guests can even go pick strawberries in their field.

It seems as the large crowds were still descending on Knaus Berry Farm even though a safer-at-home order had been in place for most of South Florida, where people are advised to stay at least 6 feet apart from each other. It posted a thank you to the Miami Police Department last week for them helping to control the crowds.
