Pick your own fruit and vegetables 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. Our 2018 Season is in full swing.
Fruits and Vegetables Grown Using Organic Techniques
Our Fruits and vegetables are grown using organic techniques, natural & sustainable; we also use IPM or integrated pest management as well.
Stop by the farm stand to register and get baskets to hold your haul, pay the $2.50 per person picking fee to help sustain and support our over 100-year old orchard and the organic techniques we use. 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! If you decide not to pick your own fruit – you can buy what we have already picked for you at our on-site farm stand.
