For some of us, picking fruit may be just another weary task on the road to making an honest wage. But for someone without a farming background, plucking a fresh sun-ripened berry or a tender peach is pure magic. As the growth of “you pick” farms testifies, lots of non-farmers are discovering the simple joy of harvesting super-fresh produce amidst the lush greenery and warm breezes of a working farm. It’s not just the excellent food… it’s the entire experience… and “you pick” farms are just the beginning. With our location near residential real estate, there are endless opportunities for farm tours and events. Corn mazes… pony rides… homeschool field trips… talks on bees… whatever your idea, if you like interacting with the public and sharing your passion – not to mention gaining customers – Sumter is a good place to start.
