​Raspberries

We're now picking raspberries!


Open hours are 8 am - 12 noon every day - dependent on weather, of course. Please call if you have ​any question about whether we're open.


Pick-your-own raspberries are $4.25/lb,

and we provide picking containers.


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. If

you get agitated around them, they'll get

agitated,  too.  Just stay calm and pick

around them or move to another spot.
