It's the most wonderful time of the year!

I absolutely LOVE going berry picking with my kids! I wanted to share this list of local u-pick farms. If you know of any others, please feel free to add in the comments or email me at catherinef@macaronikid.com. If you go to any of these farms or "like" their Facebook pages, it would be FANTASTIC if you let them know that Macaroni Kid Brandon sent you :)

Happy Picking :)
