Summer Fun for Kids: You-Pick Farms

Summer Fun for Kids: You-Pick Farms

Looking for something fun to do with the kids this summer? We've got you covered. You-pick farms are a great family-friendly activity — and they're all over Kansas!  

Many farmers open their fields to folks this time of year (and even into fall) for a farm-to-table experience. For a small fee, you can check out their operation, learn about farming and pick your own produce. Farms offer everything from berry to apple picking. You can enjoy some time outdoors and build a greater connection with (and enjoyment of) the food you put on your table. Now that’s something we can sink our teeth into!

Here are a few resources full of listings to help you find your perfect farm adventure: 

And there are plenty of options near major cities, too: 

We always recommend contacting the farmers first to double-check hours, cost and to make sure produce is in season for picking! 

Imagine the glee of your little ones as they bite into a sweet, juicy strawberry fresh off the vine. (Just make sure you get to try some, too!)
