Pick Your Own Helpful Tips:

Coming to the farm is a fun way to enjoy the outdoors and actually see where your food is grown. Although there are tractor drawn wagon rides available around the farm, you may need to walk through the fields and orchards as you pick, so we recommend that you wear comfortable, walking shoes, stay hydrated, wear sunscreen, and maybe a hat on those hot, sunny days. We have pull carts on site to assist you with your harvest available on a first-come-first-serve basis.
