Fun on the Farm: Pick Your Own Flowers, Fruit, & Veggies in the Endless Mountains

Our you-pick farms welcome you to head out to the fields and harvest fresh produce straight from the source. After all, nothing beats a carton of sweet berries on a hot summer day, a handpicked bouquet of flowers, or a plump pumpkin from the patch.

Just remember, Mother Nature can have her own plans. Weather and crop conditions may affect operating hours. Please call or check online before visiting.
