U-Pick

U-Pick Apples & More!

Apples and pumpkins are available for picking from September 21st through October. Be sure to call the farm market for available varieties before heading out to the farm! U-pick strawberries start the berry picking in May. Blackberry and raspberry picking begins in early July followed by peaches.

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.

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 Fall Festival Weekends, Strawberry FunDays and  Strawberry Festival (June). Follow us on Facebook for crop updates.
