What we put into our bodies makes the biggest difference on how our skin looks. A diet consisting of fresh fruits and vegetables contributes to glowing, vibrant and clean skin. Try something new this fall! Take your family to a local farm.
Want to save 20 to 50 percent on the freshest, most flavorful produce possible? Then skip the supermarket and head straight to the farm to PYO -- pick your own -- fruits and veggies. Along with saving money, you'll give your family a memorable way to spend a beautiful fall day together. This season, more local farms than ever are giving customers the opportunity to harvest a cornucopia of apples, peaches, blueberries, strawberries and raspberries, as well as tomatoes, green beans, sweet corn and more. Some even let you cut your own flowers and gather your own eggs. And many add to the fun by offering hayrides, corn mazes, petting zoos, fall festivals and other activities.
Find a Farm: Check out the Web site Pick Your Own for complete listings of farms and available produce by county. Still, be sure to call ahead to confirm that the farm you've chosen is open and what you want to pick is still available.
Go Early: Since there may not be a lot of shade in the fields, plan to PYO first thing in the morning. And keep in mind that some fields can be picked clean by noon.
Dress down: Wear clothes and closed-toe shoes that can get a little muddy and stained as you walk through the fields on your exploration. Don't forget sunscreen and a wide-brim hat. Bugs are not usually a problem, but you might want to carry a repellent.
Bring your own bags: Some farms offer containers for an extra fee, which you can avoid if you bring your own. Small, clean sand buckets work well for kids. Be sure to tote along snacks and water, as well as a cheap disposable camera to capture your child biting into that freshly picked peach.
