Fresh Idea - Local Farm Tour

If you are looking for a wonderful way to spend some time with your family this summer, why not take a tour of your local farm?  I am lucky to live near a farm that hosts seasonal tours of their fields.  Right now, they are hosting their watermelon tours.  You are able to ride in a tractor-pulled wagon through their farm and pick your own watermelon right off the vine!

During the tour, a guide tells you all about the history of the farm and the fruits and vegetables they grow.  They will answer questions and make the tour a ton of fun!  What a great way for you and your kids to learn more about the foods you eat!  Give your family the chance to see how our foods are really grown.  The more information and involvement you give them, the more likely they will be interested in eating these healthy foods!

If you have a local farm in your area, contact them to see if they offer tours!  If it is not something they regularly do, check and see if they will work with the local schools to schedule field trips.  It's a great way to spend the day!!
