We anticipate the raspberry patch opening for
pick-your-own about July 1. Stay tuned for more information.
Picked raspberries are not available
from our farm.
8-10 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. Younger children need to be assisted and monitored.
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 them, they'll get
agitated, too. Stay calm and pick around them, wait for them to move on, or move to another spot.
