Do I need to bring anything with me to pick?
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.
Do you have other u-pick opportunities?
We offer apples and pumpkins during our apple season. Please do not pick any flowers, vegetables or unripened apples during the fair. For more information about picking, please see OUR CROPS.
Can small children pick?
