Pick-your-own forever!

To mark the back-to-school season, and to observe Labour Day, start planning now for a family outing at a pick-your-own farm. This fun and relaxing activity is educational in many ways:

  • Picking fruit and vegetables teaches children about the origin of the meals you serve at home and helps them build respect for food. This kind of outing can be especially useful for fussy eaters.
  • People of all ages can learn to admire nature in all its bounty, as well as benefit from the fresh country air and a good stretch from roaming through the fields.
  • The harvest you take home will provide you with plenty of fresh and healthy eating options your family can enjoy in the days and weeks ahead. A great addition to your child's lunch!

Apart from berries and apples, did you know that Quebec pick-your-own farmers now offer various types of squash, as well as grapes, pears and plums? What’s more, you can choose from a number of agritourism offerings, including a pick-your-own experience, a visit to a small farm, a food tasting, a themed tour and more.
