Arkansas has many unique family farms, u-pick operations and even special event venues
that allow you to experience agriculture in a variety of ways. A YOU-Pick (U-Pick)
or pick-your-own operation is a farm where customers may go out to pick, cut or choose
your own product directly out of the field. This type of enterprise is most popular
with berry, pumpkin, tree fruit, and Christmas tree farms. The focus is on customers
experiencing the harvest.
Whether you are shopping for fine meats or fresh produce, look for Arkansas grown
items in your local stores. Arkansas farmers and ranchers produce a variety of items
year-round. The Arkansas Agriculture Department promotes local brands—Arkansas Grown
and Arkansas Made—to allow consumers to easily identify locally produced products.
Many farms also develop their own brand highlighting their farm history and production
Many restaurants throughout the state use locally grown ingredients, some even feature
Arkansas Grown menu items. These venues often highlight those “local experiences”
on their menus or within their restaurants/websites.
It's okay to brag every now and then! Whether you're watching Arkansas-bred horses
