Escape the metropolitan madness of last-minute Christmas shopping and head to Plant City for some pre-holiday family fun. Keel Farms is reigning in the holiday season the only way it knows how—with a free, two-day U-Pick produce event fully equipped with Santa visits, free hayrides, and friendly farm animals. This special U-Pick for the holiday affair will be around for only two days, December 14 and 21, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Seasonal fruits and vegetables available for picking are cabbage, collards, pak choi, kale, eggplant, jalapeño, cherry tomatoes, Swiss chard, spinach, bush beans and strawberries. We suggest you get there early enough to get some prime picking done. 

This might be the time to snag some hand-picked local produce for your Christmas feast, and maybe snap a few fresh Santa pictures while you’re there. Admission, parking, and hayrides are free—the only thing you have to pay for is what you pick. 

Keel Farms, located at 5210 Thonotosassa Rd. in Plant City.
