Our Farm Market is open all Year. Picking is only available  May through October as each crop ripens.

Pick your own provides a fun experience! Picking your own provides the freshest, healthiest choice and can provide great savings. The more you pick, the lower the price we offer.

Insiders tip: Arriving earlier in the day provides customers with the best picking conditions and selections.

•Upon arrival please come into the Farm Market to prepay for fruit and picking containers (type of container depends on the crop).  Picking is only allowed using our standard container, which reduces bruising, on the day of purchase.  We provide a discount for reuse of our baskets at a future visit.

We offer berry picking baskets to minimize damage to fruit and make picking easier.  We offer 2 different size containers. The price of each container will be determined by the crop in season.  The smaller ‘MiniBasket’ is our "minimum picking requirement" for a single person. The ‘Regular Picking Basket ‘ is the minimum requirement for groups of 3 or more. Volume discounts are available with either size.

We do not weigh the baskets. They are sold on an ‘each’ basis and you can put as much or as little as you care to in the basket.
