PHOENIX — Looking for a way to embrace the fall season while stocking up on Arizona's freshest produce? Go play farmer for a few hours and come home with a basket overflowing with organic or sustainably grown berries and veggies.

See what U-pick farms are like in Arizona in the video above!

Just three rules of green thumb to follow before you pack up the family and head out:

1. Check the farm's hours and availability before heading out. Hours may vary due to the conditions of the season.

2. Farms may charge small admission fees SO

3. Bring cash to pay for your harvest, because many places don't accept checks or credit.

HAPPY PICKING!
