Fruit Picking Check List
- Call before you go! Most farms have a hotline to tell you what is available for the day. Things change drastically, so always call a few hours before you head to the farm.
- Get ready to get a little dirty. Close-toe shoes are a must, and a cute hat is always a plus. Be prepared deal with a little flying dirt.
- Bring water. A lot of farms have a store available to purchase snacks throughout the day, but some don’t. Keeping water with you is a must on hot days.
- Don’t forget your camera. Some of my best memories are out in the field, and you will want to make sure you capture those moments.
