This strawberry farm is giving jobs to the unemployed
It is strawberry season. That means farms like Phillips Farms in Cary are buzzing with strawberry lovers. If these were normal times, consumers would be out in the field picking for themselves. Social distancing guidelines make it impossible to open strawberry fields to the picking public. That puts farmers like Michael Phillips in a quandary. The berries can't pick themselves. With 2 acres of land to pick, Phillips turned to folks recently out of work to help. "We need them, I'm hoping just as much as they need us. We've hired 25 folks that have been affected by COVID-19," said Phillips.
