Fruit Picking in Kansas City

For city kids, the novelty of picking their own fruit right off the bush or vine is not only educational, but fun as well. And for some reason, pancakes made with blueberries YOU picked yourself just taste better!

Fruit Picking Tips:

  • Remember comfortable shoes (you will be walking in fields) and wear sunscreen.
  • Call ahead to verify picking times as they vary from farm to farm. This is a MUST!
  • Bring bottled water and pack a picnic if the farm allows.
  • And don’t forget your camera… children with blueberry smiles make a great photo-op!
