A few u-pick tips:

  • Bring sunscreen and bug spray.
  • Bring cash. Some farms accept credit cards but have cash on hand just in case.
  • Wear closed-toed shoes when out on the farm.
  • Pack plenty of water for everyone in your group. It can get hot in the fields (gotta love winter in Florida).
  • Only pick ripe fruit and veggies. Strawberries will not continue to ripen once picked.
  • Bring your own containers just in case. Some farms provide containers, but not all.
