A visit to one of these u-pick farms is a great way to enjoy a little family time this summer. Not only will you make awesome memories, but you can continue the fun at home by whipping up a fabulous dessert with your haul!
In addition to fun and deliciousness, a trip to the farm will help your kids learn about farming and where food actually comes from. While I’m a huge advocate of reading, a book about gardening can never compare to a first-hand experience like this!
And of course, you’ll also be supporting a local farmer. So really, it’s a tipple-win type of situation!
