Pick Your Own Benefits
"Pick Your Own" is not only entertaining and fun; it?s an outdoor activity that can be enjoyed by the whole family. The fresh air and sunshine are great for your health, the exploration of the fields and orchard is a unique adventure and the fruit always tastes better when you've "picked your own". Additional fruit picking benefits to consider are:
- The quality is much better than fruit purchased at any store.
- The fruit is much healthier and fresher.
- The costs are usually substantially less because the farmer doesn't have to pay labor to pick the fruit, as well as incur any packaging or shipping costs.
- The best way to get quantity, quality and cost-effective pricing when preserving and canning fruits.
Ripening Dates for Picking Your Own Fruit
