Per-Person Admission Fee is Waived until Blueberries Wake UP in June:
*$2.50/per person admission charge (in cash) for pick your own fruit and veg later this summer. This helps to support our work to bring organically-grown fruits & vegetables to your table and keep the 105 plus-year-old historic farm going. For farmstand and PYO payments we accept major credit cards, but prefer no Amex, due to high fees.
*We have a pay for what you pick policy (per lb/pint) – Please be careful – weight can be deceiving. Also, we can’t put the fruit back on trees or bushes! FYI Pick-your-own apples/fruit is done for the season; but stop by the farmstand where we’ve done the work finding what’s ripe just for you. But spring/summer pick your own is around the corner.
Stop by our on-site farm stand and select from what we have already picked for you – or sign up for a weekly farm share (see below).

Now is the time to support the farm and get your full or half CSA Farm Share. Community Supported Agriculture – We are all in this together! Runs – June through October and is pro-rated if you join mid-season (depending on when the bushes actually WAKE UP, blueberries are first, THEN WE RUN THROUGH OCTOBER.) Expect to stop by weekly (or bi-weekly for half-shares) and pick up your share of fresh organically-grown fruits & veggies. The select number of Farm Shares we sell help give us extra “seed money” each year to get things rolling at the farm as there is a lot of hard work fixing, repairing, planting and protecting the plantings that goes on at this time of year. Remember 1st Come = 1st Served for CSA/fruit/farm shares, slots are limited.

What Fruit is Available When?
Fruit ripens in its own good time with help from pollinators and the weather, but listed below is the general months/seasons when our fruits and veggies are available (they often overlap):
July: blueberries, raspberries, peaches, blackberries, vegetables (including bell peppers, cucumbers, and hot peppers – tomatoes show up sometime in July)
August: blackberries, plums, nectarines, peaches, pears, apples, vegetables (tomatoes have definitely joined the veggie crowd)
September: raspberries, blackberries, peaches, plums, nectarines, pears, APPLES, pawpaws & vegetables
December: Christmas trees & holly (we cut Christmas trees in advance, or you can select your own and have us cut it for you)/ We also have firewood for sale Dec-March.
If you’d rather have us pick what’s ripe for you, you can also grab what we have at our farm stand. *Sometimes, due to the weather, a particular fruit, such as apples, may only be available at the farmstand (where we have picked it from out orchards for you), rather than pick-your-own. This often happens later on in a fruit’s season – late Oct/Nov. Local Honey too.
Come explore the variety of organically-grown fruits and vegetables on our 108 year-old orchard.
Our Fruits and vegetables are grown using natural, sustainable, organic techniques; we also use IPM or integrated pest management as well.
How do I pick My Own Fruits and Veggies? (PYO Season begins when Blueberries wake up in June) – click here for more info There is a $2.50 Per Person Picking fee to pick your own fruit to help sustain and support our over 100-year-old orchards (fee may be waived before June and late fall days when the Veggieland pickings are slim.) Apples we have picked for you are available at our farmstand.
Stop by the farmstand 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, especially if you are looking for a specific variety of fruit – like apples – we have Many different varieties that ripen at different times of the season.
If you don’t want to pick your own fruits and vegetables – we pick what’s ripe and in season so you can just grab and go. We also carry a great variety of locally-sourced and organically-grown edibles – including our own raw local honey, heirloom veggies including tomatoes, apple and pumpkin butters, locally made jams and jellies, Pennsylvania maple syrup, and in the fall our own Apple Cider and Pumpkins for picking. Our products complement the fruit we grow, and change throughout the year according to what’s in season.
