Andover Events FamilyLife

Where Andover families can pick your own fruit ?

Love fruit and want to encourage your little ones to eat more?

What better way to spend a day with the kids?

Getting some fresh air (and getting them away from the electronics) and spending quality time picking your own fruit? The best thing is there is no age limit… from tot to teen (and older). What’s not to like?
