PYO - Pick Your Own (fruit) in Auckland
Hey - we picked our own! (Massey Orchard, Auckland.) I must admit it wasn't just for the children. I had just read about making your own jam, and I wanted practice. But it was a really really great family activity. (And zero plastic container waste was involved!)
They should call it "Find your own" though, not pick your own. Most of the fun comes from trying to find the ripe strawberries amidst the plants. It's a challenge!
We picked two moderately full boxes, as you can see above. They weren't cheap - it came to $80 (NZ).
But it was worth it.
