Read & Pick is an innovative program that combines hands on farm activity with your young child and listening to a story highlighting the fruit or farm area. Parents/guardians and young children (ages preschool to 8 years) are welcome.
Each program includes reading two stories about topic. Staff will explain how crops grow and how to pick them. Each program costs $7 per participating child and includes picking a container of fruit or activity.
The programs are on Tuesdays, with 2 separate sessions at 9:30am and 11am, and last about one hour. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Please call 609-924-2310.
You must check in for each program in the store at 330 Cold Soil Road. Please note schedule is subject to change.
