Please, not shop=pick_your_own..... shop=* indicates what is sold, not
how it is sold. This would currently probably be categorised as
shop=greengrocers if it were in a normal retail area. But in this case
it is limited to, or specialised in, a very small range of produce. Some
I know only do strawberries for example. I would think shop=fruit
(subset of greengrocers), fruit=strawberry (further limited to specific
fruits) would cover this. 

Something like self_service=yes or staffed=no on the stand perhaps, if
you can buy the stuff that somebody else has picked, using an honesty
box system? And pick_your_own=yes/only if you can/must go into the field
to get your own?

>>> How would you tag such a service? shop=* seems wrong for the whole farm, but it might be new value of shop=*, like shop=customer_picks_farm, or something that is put onto the building, or  farm:customer_picks=yes for the shop=farm, as often times the roadside stand doubles as a fruit stand as well, but sometimes they have different names for the farm that packs the goods and sells it to shops, and another for the "you-pick" service.
