There is nothing quite like visiting a pick your own produce farm on a warm summer morning to pick up fruits and vegetables for the week. Your children will enjoy filling up a basket of produce and learning about the benefits of gardening. Parents are now are looking to teach their children more about the farm-to-table experience, and there’s no better lesson than harvesting your own food.
