Fruit picking in Geneva

Fruit picking in Geneva is one of the most fun and nature-in-the-city kind of activities you can offer your kids. From Spring to early autumn you can pick up different kinds of fruits, veggies, and even flowers all around Geneva and Vaud.

There are a few farms and orchards offering an activity like that in Geneva, and there are tons of them in the neighbouring canton of Vaud.

The French word you need to find these places yourself is: CUILLETTE (or auto-cuillette), meaning self pick up.

Have fun and bon apetit!
