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.

​Raspberries

The raspberries came through the winter pretty well and our crew did a great job of removing

the old canes. We generally expect to begin picking right around July 4th - just as strawberry picking is finishing up. Please check back for updates.


We do not offer picked raspberries.


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. Children under 8 need to be

​carefully supervised.


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 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.
