Picking seasonal fruits date idea illustration

Picking seasonal fruit on a field or farm is a delightful date idea that combines nature, activity, and romance in one sweet package. It's a unique opportunity to spend quality time together while enjoying the outdoors, and it's an excellent choice for couples looking for a wholesome, enjoyable experience that’s different from the usual dinner or movie date. In addition, after you've filled your basket with ripe, delicious fruits or juicy berries, you can extend your date by joining forces in the kitchen to bake a delightful cake or whip up some homemade fruit jam!

Preparation steps:

  • Research the Farm: Not all farms allow fruit picking. Research beforehand and check the rules and available fruits. Some farms provide updates on their websites or social media about the best time to pick specific fruits.
  • Dress Appropriately: Wear comfortable clothes that you don't mind getting a bit dirty. Closed-toe shoes are a must to protect your feet. Depending on the weather, you may also want to wear a hat and sunglasses.
  • Arrive Early: To beat the heat and the crowds, arrive early in the morning. This will also ensure you have a wider selection of fruits to choose from and you'll have the whole afternoon to bake a yummy fruity cake together!

Some tips:

  • Plan a picnic: Some farms have picnic areas. You can bring along a picnic blanket, sandwiches, and a cooler with drinks for a relaxing meal amidst nature after fruit picking. It is a very romantic setting to share a freshly picked strawberry together.
  • Reusable Bags/Baskets: While some farms provide containers, it's environmentally friendly to bring your own reusable bags or baskets.
  • Camera: Capture the fun moments of your date. A picture of you two holding the fruits of your labor will be a great memory.
  • Cash: Some farms only accept cash, so bring enough for the fruit you pick and any other farm products that catch your eye.
