Summer is one of the best seasons – there is no doubt about that! Not only is it a great season for the warm weather, beach and vacation, but because of all the watermelon you can eat! Watermelon is the summer fruit and there’s no better place to get it then a farm. Sure, purchasing from the grocery store can be convenient, but there’s nothing better that supporting your local farmers and picking your own watermelon (or any produce for that matter) at a farm! Not only is the watermelon so much more delicious when it’s picked fresh, but it’s also a fun activity for the whole family! Check out some of the locations around the country to pick your own watermelon!
