Photo taken in May 2020 at 5-K Family Organics U-Farm.
The u-pick season is a family-friendly favorite tradition in Tampa Bay. While Safer at Home orders are lifted, you will still need to practice safe social distancing to keep yourself and your family safe. Outside on the farm under the beautiful Florida sun is a great way to do it while showing your kids where their food comes from.
Make sure to bring your hand sanitizer and wipes as an extra precaution.
