Tips & Technique

  • Pickers are encouraged to only pick thick stalks and to tear/cut the leaf off the top of the stalk, leaving the leaf in the field to return organic matter to the earth.  The leaf is not edible.
  • Rhubarb is rarely eaten raw but it makes a great addition to pies, cobblers, & jams.

Picking Guidelines

Upon arrival please come into the Farm Market to prepay for fruit and picking containers (type of container depends on the crop). We will ask you how many adults and how many children ages 2-10 are in your group.

 

We will use this information to give you the appropriate number of tokens and meet minimum purchase requirements. Let us know if you have more than 15 people in your group so we can make special arrangements for you.
