There is no easy way to pick strawberries, for example, other than backbending labor that makes standing up agonizing. The pick-it-yourself farms minimize the work and maximize the experience with a false sense of PR. This is an issue close to me. As a teenager, I worked on farms as a summer job. There was no romance to it. It was hot, dirty and painful. wouldn't have done it had there been other jobs available.
