Pick your Own Fruit

Pick Your Own Fruits and Veggie 2022 Season is now open starting with…..Pick Your Own Blueberries; thanks for supporting the farm! Check our Facebook page for updates.

During PYO season…your first step is to Stop by our Farm stand and get oriented to what PYO fruits and vegetables are in which section of the farm and what’s ripe that day :). Regesiter* and get your baskets to hold your pickings.  Masks  are not currently required, but please follow social distancing suggestions and current CDC guidelines.

*During pick your own season June through mid-November: Pick Your Own fruits and vegetables includes a $3.50, per-person admission fee (cash preferred) to help support the farm.

Pick Your Own Produce: fruit (and in fall our specialty: apples) and vegetables is a great family outing, and with 35 acres there is plenty of room. Indian Orchards in Media, PA is a great place to teach kids where their produce comes from.  

*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! 

Mid-Summer Brings: Pick your Own Blueberries, Strawberries, Raspberries, Blackberries, Peaches, and more, as mother nature wakes them up. Plus early summer vegetables.

Late-Summer Brings: Pick your Own Late-season Peaches and Apples and more – but what is fruiting shifts with mother nature. Pick your own vegetables too!

Late Summer/Early Fall will bring Picky Your Own Apples galore – we have many unique apple varieties.

At our Farm stand we also have produce that we have picked for you. Along with other goodies like our own honey and products that compliment our sustainably-grown and pesticide-free fruits and veggies. We are a small-staffed, family-run farm – please bear with us as we work with Mother Nature to get the first of the Summer crops for you at our farm stand.

In Fall: Pumpkins, Apples, Cider, Raspberries, some figs – Cider often sells out, but if you ‘e lucky – you can see us make up the next batch….
