U-Pick berries and more!
We are generally open from late May into early September for the public to pick berries. Strawberry season comes first, followed by raspberries and blackberries. With lots of raspberry and blackberry varieties to pick, they’re available for picking all summer! There’s a fee to pick, but it’s deducted from your purchase at checkout.
Please note: No matter what the season or what the crop, berry availability may change within days or even hours. Due to the weather or the number of customers who visit to pick, availability can go from being lots of berries in the field with excellent picking to minimal berries to left to harvest. We suggest that you always call for current availability before heading out to the farm. (908-689-3761)
