Self-Picking

WHAT IS A VENDING MACHINE?

 

On a self-picking farm, the farmer is responsible for the cultivation and care of the crops, but allows the customer to harvest himself . The producer usually straddles part of his field, which can then be used for self-picking. A word of explanation is given as to which fruits can be picked and what to look out for in order not to damage the plants. You can then fill your basket (and belly) with fruit or vegetables. Finally, they are weighed and you pay (usually a lower price) per kilo or basket. Self-picking is also used at Community Supported Agriculture , but it is the members of the farm who come to harvest their share of fruit and vegetables.

WHY WOULD YOU VISIT A SELF-PICKING FARM?

Because you harvest your products yourself, you immediately taste a bit of the farmer’s craft. Your products cannot be fresher than this. And what is not in season, you cannot pick. So you are sure to enjoy the best that the season has to offer. Paying a visit to a self-picking farm is certainly the children’s taste. We bet that the fruit they picked themselves is used up? 

WHAT CAN YOU HARVEST ON A FARM WITH SELF-PICKING?

You can pick small fruit on most self- picking farms. Just think of blueberries, gooseberries, raspberries or kiwi berries. But there are also self-harvesting farms where you can go for fresh herbsforgotten vegetables and even edible flowers
