5 Tips for a Fun Farm Visit

Planning a trip to a U-pick farm or farmers market can be an adventure in itself. Here are some tips to ensure you have a fun and fruitful outing:

  1. Check before you go - Most farms and farmers’ markets are seasonal and weather-dependent. Different fruits and vegetables have specific harvest seasons. Before heading out, check the farm’s website or call ahead to see what’s in season and ready for picking.
  2. Dress Comfortably - Farms are often rustic and involve a fair bit of walking. Wear comfortable closed-toed shoes, a hat for sun protection, and clothes you don’t mind getting a little dirty.
  3. Bring Supplies - Pack essentials like sunscreen, water, and snacks. You may want to bring your containers or baskets, as some farms may charge for them. A cooler can help keep your harvest fresh.
  4. Make it a Learning Experience - U-pick farms and farmers’ markets are great educational opportunities for kids and adults alike. Take the time to learn about the different crops, how they are grown, and the importance of supporting local agriculture.
  5. Capture the moment: Farms and markets provide great photo ops. Take a moment to capture the memory.
