This was something I’ve always wanted to do with my students. But when I searched for it many years ago, I could only find apple picking and it was too far away and they said it wasn’t good for kids. But here at Tanaka Farms, located in Irivne, it was the perfect place to take my kids. I also scheduled it mid-week to give them a little rest from the week’s worth of field trips. A hiking trip, a full day’s at Mulligan’s, and to the beach, I figured they needed something leisurely like this to be able to enjoy the rest of the week. For this field trip, my wife and two babies joined us in the fun. We’ll definitely be back next spring break and also during the summer when they have watermelon picking! It was my favorite fruit as a child!
