Can small children pick?
Of course!! Every year, families visit our farm to pick these delicious berries. We recommend adhering to our dress requirements above to protect your arms, legs and feet though.
Do I need to bring anything with me?
Our farm provides the berry baskets for you. However, we recommend bringing gloves and as crazy as it might sound...a back scratcher. Even though we prune back the vines, often, people want to get berries further back and some tool to use as an arm extension helps. We also recommend bringing water and sun screen for our warm summer days.
