Are you considering a pick-your-own experience?

Recently, the popularity of pick-your-own family outings has increased.

It is no wonder.

We can enjoy not only the fruits and vegetables we may harvest, but also we get to experience some time on a real farm.

We are fortunate each month brings the availability of a different fruit or vegetable.

What is available for us to pick varies on location, varieties planted and weather conditions, so always call the farm so you don't miss the products you are after or the times they are available to pick.
