This weeks’ family outing idea: Pick your own farm.
I know I mention CSA programs all the time but this is another way to get to know your local farmers and get your kids involved.
It’s been some time since we had the chance to get the kids out to our local farms. A few years ago we took our daughters to Cal Poly Pomona during strawberry season where they had “Pick your own basket”.
They had a great time. Although my little one now claims she “doesn’t like strawberries” I’ll have to show her this post to remind her it hasn’t always been that way.
Like last week, www.localharvest.org is your best resource for finding your local pick-your-own farm.
