This U-pick patch is planted, weeded, irrigated, fertilized & maintained by cousins McNeil, Jaxon & Chase Walker.
There are two main purposes for the U-Pick Red Barn patch...
- For the boys to learn how to work and find out what it takes to earn and pay their own way, both daily and for future missions and schooling. It means more when it's earned.
- To provide an experience for those who want to learn by picking the produce from the field. See how its grown, the irrigation and growing method that allows watermelon as large as 60 lbs, cantaloupe the size of basketballs, and pumpkins exceeding 300 lbs to be grown in Idaho Falls!
