The raspberry patch will open about July 1-5, 2022. Please consider signing up for email updates on raspberry picking dates & times.


PYO raspberries are sold by the pint and we provide picking containers.


We may be able to offer some picked raspberries this year - stay tuned for more information.


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 of all ages 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 sweet or juicy.


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


Honeybees really love 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.
