Happy Fall! There is so many great things to do this season in and around Adams, Arapahoe and Jefferson County. One unique way to spend time with your family outdoors is to visit a local Colorado farm and pick your own farm fresh produce. This year due to a frost in early May, unfortunately, multiple farms lost their apple crops. However, there are still some apples to pick as well as many other fruits, vegetables, flowers, herbs and more. This weekend, why don’t you take a drive with the family to these two farms below and pick out fresh ingredients to make a local, organic, homemade dinner.
