Nebraska City, Neb. (Aug. 19, 2008) – Summer’s harvest of fruit and vegetables are ripe, ready for you to pick and just a short drive away at Arbor Day Farm and Kimmel Orchard & Vineyard.

The pick-your-own season has begun at Arbor Day Farm and Kimmel Orchard. During August, peaches and table grapes are available at Kimmel Orchard, while tomatoes and other garden vegetables are ready to be picked for those who want farm fresh produce at Arbor Day Farm.

“Picking wholesome fruits and vegetables is an activity the entire family can enjoy,” said Erik Olson, orchards manager at Arbor Day Farm and Kimmel Orchard. “It’s a great experience to visit the gardens and orchards to see how fruits and vegetables grow and then take home your food for a fresh meal.”
