U-Pick farms are growing in popularity. It is now popular in America, as it should be, to want to know where exactly your food comes from. When it comes to fruits and vegetables unless you grow your own, a u-pick farm is really the only way to know where your food comes from. A u-pick farm is a farm where you shop for fresh produce, so fresh, in fact, that you pick it yourself.
Some great u-pick farms in Arkansas include; Caney Creek Berry Farm in the central area, Wildacre Ranch in the southwestern area, Hardin Farms in the southeastern area, Maw Maw’s Blueberries in the northwestern area, and Naomi’s Fresh Vegetables in the northeastern area.
