Here are Acadiana’s ‘Pick Your Own” Farms
There are just a few weeks left in the summer break and I have been wanting to take my kiddos somewhere fun and preferably outdoors.
I started searching the internet and found some pretty cool farms that allow visitors to pick items from blueberries to sunflowers and everything in between. As I was looking through the information I thought that other people may not know that these places exist.
So here are the farms that I found in my research:
