Pick your Own Fruit

Pick Your Own Fruits and veggie 2021 season is in full swing with PYO APPLES! Check our Facebook page for updates.

During PYO season…your first step is to Stop by our Farmstand and get oriented to what PYO fruits and veggies are in which section of the farm and what’s ripe that day 🙂  Masks and social distancing have been relaxed, but please follow current guidelines.

During pick your own season: Pick your Own fruits and veggies includes a $3.50 admission fee (cash preferred) to help support the farm.

Pick your own fruit (apples in fall) 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 fruits and vegetables come 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! 

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!

Mid-Summer Brings: Pick your Own Blueberries, Strawberries, Raspberries, Blackberries, Peaches, and more 

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

At our Farmstand we also have fruit and veggies 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 farmstand.

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