You are going to need a large liability policy if you are going to let
people pick on your farm.

There are people who let their kids run around like animals.  I see that
even in the business I am working in now.  We get people who let their kids
act like jerks and they are a danger to themselves.  Still, if they get
hurt, it's going to be a probable lawsuit.

Figure that some of your customers are going to eat along the way.  Or hide
what they pick.  It's nuts.  Heck, I don't know if I could resist eating a
berry or 12.

I dunno, I think U Pick is a pain in the butt.  How does that stack up to
hiring workers to pick for you and lining up commercial buyers?
