Summer Raspberry Season is Underway!

We'll be open for raspberry picking on even-numbered days (July 16, 18, 20, etc.)

from 8 am-12 noon.

Pick-your-own raspberries are $4.00/lb.

and we provide containers.

Picked raspberries are not available at the farm,

but may be available at the Farmer's Markets

listed on our home page during raspberry season.

Children should be at least 8 years old to pick raspberries due to the prickly nature of raspberry canes, and the mosquitoes and bees that love the raspberry patch.

Mosquitoes love to hang out in raspberries, so consider bringing repellent spray.

Our bees love the raspberry flowers. Honeybees

are generally pretty peaceful and can usually just be avoided, or even gently swished away. But if you get agitated around them, they'll get agitated, too.  Just stay calm and pick around them or move to another spot.

Raspberries by the numbers

1 pint = 2 cups

1 pint raspberries weighs about

12 ounces (3/4 pound)

5-6 pints, about 4 lbs, of raspberries

are needed for a batch of jam.

Freezing raspberries:

Rinse gently and drain/dry thoroughly.  Put into plastic bags or containers, seal & freeze. Or, spread them on cookie sheets, freeze, and then put into bags or containers.
