FARMER MIKE’S FIELD TRIP PACKAGES

Farmer Mike’s U Pick is a family owned produce farm located in Bonita Springs. We grow and sell over a hundred different types of produce on our farm. Our novelty items are our strawberries and tomatoes, which you are able to pick yourself straight from the fields. We also have a beautiful flower field filled with different varieties, dependent on the time of the year, in which you may pick as well. All of our produce grown on the farm is available for purchase at our onsite market.

FARMER MIKE’S FIELD TRIP PACKAGES
Depending on the time of year and what is in season on the farm we have different field trip packages. Our field trips in the past have had an absolutely blast out on the farm. It’s not everyday they get to walk through plants and are actually able to pick flowers that catch their eyes. Students love to race through the strawberry fields challenging each other on who can find the biggest berry, as well as the juiciest! Seeing the excitement on your student’s faces as they are picking their very own strawberries and tomatoes is what we love most.
