- If the name is blue with an underline; that's a link to their website. Click on it for the most current hours and information.
- ALWAYS call BEFORE YOU GO to confirm their hours and whether they have events and which attractions or winter activities are available. All three can change during the short winter season, due to weather, demand and the farmer's business conditions! Farms get sold, shut down or run out of trees, and I have no way of knowing, because I can't call or visit every farm every month, let alone every day. For more tips to make your trip fun and successful, click here! DON'T DRIVE OUT THERE IF YOU CAN'T REACH THEM BY PHONE OR EMAIL!
- And please tell the farmer you visit in Arizona that you found their farm here! I need the farmers to realize that you found them here so that they will keep their information up to date!
