Carly sent me a very sweet email, prompting me to get my butt in gear and post up this Pick Your Own Farm post! This was a really hard post to research, so if you know of any other local pick your own farms, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for the reminder Carly and I hope you find it useful!
