Being an all year round you pick area for fresh fruits and vegetables on season, Garwood farms has a giant tractor that you tag along to ride to the U pick areas for picking up assorted fruits and vegetables in season located around their sprawling 400 acre farm and you can just pick any amount of fruits or veggies that you fancy and they will weight it at the market store for the price. The tractor will b a bumpy ride but you will feel the rustic ambiance in riding it hehehe.
