Here are a few tips to make your berry-picking adventure a success..

  • Berry picking availability can change daily. Always check the website or call for any farm you planning to visit.
  • It’s hot and sunny out in that field! Sunblock and hats are helpful, and bring plenty of  water to drink.
  • Expect messy fingers! Sometimes you grab a berry that is too ripe and it squishes in your fingers a little or sometimes little fingers are just too overzealous and squeeze the berries too much! In any case, wet wipes can be handy.
  • Many farms only accept cash. Check their website or call ahead of time.
  • Berries only last a handful of days after picked, so plan ahead for what you are going to do with all those delicious berries
