As the holiday season quickly approaches, the air is filled with cheer, laughter, and the enticing smell of cinnamon indicating a very monumental moment of the year: Knausberry season.
That’s right, Miami’s holiday tradition has returned to bless our tummies with delicious farm-fresh goods provided by the infamous Knausberry Farm located down south in the Redlands.
Founded in 1956, brothers Ray and Russell Knaus began a berry-selling business in the Redlands, which were later incorporated into delicious cookies made by Ray’s wife Barbara. Soon after, he told her they were good enough to sell and it didn’t take much longer for their business to take off.
Over the years, they’ve expanded their inventory to include a variety of fresh goods ranging from delicious cinnamon rolls, breads, cakes, pies, cookies, jam, ice cream, and fruit shakes. The business is currently being run by Ray, his wife, and their children.
Knausberry’s gooey warm cinnamon rolls are what truly capture the essence of this Miami autumn tradition. Upon arrival, you can expect long lines as many locals wait in anticipation for their irresistible goods. While you’re waiting, you can grab a fresh fruit milkshake to cool you down and satisfy your taste buds. The farm also features U-Pick strawberries and tomatoes during their respective season.
Pricing for cinnamon rolls are $10.25 for a dozen, $5.50 for half a dozen, and $1.10 for a single roll. The farm is open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and remains closed on Sundays.
