Pick Your Own Local Produce


Seasonal Produce

  • Strawberries – now thru end of May
  • Blackberries, Blueberries , Cherries – June – July
  • Peaches – late June/July
  • Apples – late Summer/Fall

Tips for Picking Produce:

  1. Call ahead – get details on pricing, availability, and hours of operation
  2. Containers – some farms provide them for free and some charge, or you can bring your own
  3. Arrive early – better selection; bring sun block and snacks

Post Picking Prep:

  1. Have a plan – don’t let what you picked go to waste
  2. Use or eat bruised fruit first
  3. Not all fruit needs to be cleaned: Example – clean strawberries but not blueberries

Online Resources:
The following sites include information like harvest calendars, farmers markets, and local festivals.
