​Fruit from our farm to your table

The raspberry patch is closed for 2021. Thank you to everyone who came out and picked - we truly appreciate your business & hope to see you again in July 2022!


PYO raspberries are $5 a pint.


Picked raspberries are not available.


6-8 is a good minimum age for picking raspberries due to the prickly nature of raspberry canes, and the mosquitoes and bees that love the raspberry patch. Children need to be assisted and monitored when picking.


Ripe raspberries should slide easily off their core.

If you have to tug the berry isn't ripe yet

and won't be as sweet.


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


Honeybees really love the raspberry blossoms, but are generally pretty peaceful and can usually just

be avoided, or gently swished away. If you get agitated around the bees, they'll get agitated, too. Stay calm and pick around them, wait for them to move on, or move to another spot.
