U-Pick Farms

Even city folk can try their hand at farming at a u-pick farm, where you'll get some exercise as well as a great big bunch of fresh produce you pick yourself. There's something about harvesting your own food that makes you appreciate it more. Since u-picks are seasonal, you'll want to call ahead of time for operating days and times.
