Fall is pick-your-own time. Here’s where to go!
The days are getting cooler, the leaves are starting to turn, and the harvest is underway. Fall (aka sweater season) is upon us!
I don’t know about you, but at this time of year I get a sudden urge to start cooking. Baking, pickling, canning … my kitchen becomes my playroom. And what could be nicer than cooking with fresh-picked fruits and vegetables?
We invite you to communicate with the producers mentioned before going there to confirm their opening.
