U-Pick Apples & More!

Apples and pumpkins are available for picking from September 19th through October. U-pick strawberries start the berry picking in May. Blueberry picking traditionally starts in late June, followed by blackberries later in the summer. Be sure to call the farm market for availability before heading out to the farm!

Please note: No matter what the season or what the crop, crop 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 (732-329-8656).

Visit us all season long to pick-your-own. As one crop ends, it’s not long until another begins. Don’t miss our annual Strawberry Festival (June), Blueberry Fun Days (July), Apple Festival (September), and Fall Festival (October) weekends!

Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to get our most current crop updates!
