Farms, Orchards and U-Picks

At a farm, families can see the machinery that is used in harvesting crops, as well as the different crops that are produced. Some farms even have interactive areas where children can get up close to small farm animals. You can also get a firsthand look at where some of the foods we eat everyday are grown and harvested. Orchards provide a look into how different varieties of fruits and fruit trees are cared for and grow, enabling children to see how the process that goes into planting and harvesting. In the fall, u-picks are a great place to visit allowing everyone to select their own pumpkins to carve or decorate. Some locations even have a coinciding celebration with hot apple cider, kids’ games, hayrides and a petting zoo with farm animals. U-Picks are a way to experience getting fresh fruits, vegetables and berries without having a garden to tend. The different seasons offer an ever-changing variety of produce to select at a u-pick. The communities along the byway share a rich agricultural history, so next time stop in to a farm, orchard or u-pick to enjoy the local produce and hospitality.
