What to Bring to Pick Berries

Picking berries is so much fun that the whole family will love picking their own! It is a good idea to wear appropriate footwear for the orchard. Please be sun safe and bring along a good hat and sunscreen as you will be out in the elements weather depending!

We supply your first container upon entry and if you wish to pick additional fruit you can purchase another container for 50 cents at the farm.
