Fall won’t officially be here in the valley for another month-ish, so we can’t think of a better way to get out of the heat than heading to a farm to pick some fresh fruit and veggies.
One of our favorite Fall traditions is visiting pumpkin patches located all over AZ, but did you know that many of the farms offer fruit-picking options for in-season produce. Whether you are looking to get out of town and enjoy slightly cooler temps, or just wanting to make a day out of it, here is everything you need to know about the best places to go!
Please visit each website before planning your trip, because times and availability can change.
Mortimer Family Farms in Dewey, Arizona is only a little over an hour outside of the valley. They offer tons of seasonal you-pick-it options. They also have other family friendly activities all over the farm.
