Pick your own fruit is a great family outing – and Indian Orchards in Media, PA is a great place to teach kids where their fruits and vegetables come from.
Fruits and vegetables Grown Using Organic Techniques
Our Fruits and vegetables are grown using organic techniques, natural, sustainable, minimally sprayed; we also use IPM or integrated pest management as well.
Stop by the farm stand to register and get baskets to hold your haul. We’ll also let you know what’s in season that day and where to go on the farm. Let us know if you are looking for a specific variety of fruit – especially apples – we have many different varieties. Don’t forget a hat and sunscreen!
*Note for 2016: We have several varieties of apples that we have picked from our orchards at the brand new renovated farm stand, but due to the late frost Spring of 2016, our Apple Orchard had not produced enough apples to make “Pick Your Own Apples” workable this year. There are still some other pick your own fruit options, but apples, sorry not this year. But we have done the work for you and wandered the orchard to find the fruit that is ripe just for you! So stop on by our farm stand.
