BLUEBERRIES – PYO – $2.99 a HALF POUND (about a pint) and Pre-picked is $3.99 a HALF POUND.

BLACKBERRIES –  PYO – $2.99 a HALF POUND (about a pint) and Pre-picked is $3.99 a HALF POUND.

*Before going to pick, please check in with the market for field directions and to get a “busket” (basket/bucket!) or bring your busket from last year!  

**We offer our pre-weighed 4 quart “Busket” for a $1.00 (it will hold about 5 pounds mounded).  We  encourage you to wash and store your berries in it.  You can bring it back for any PYO!   Our buskets are preweighed so that the weight of the containers are taken off of the berry weight/price.

Please bring in and weigh/pay for your berries before eating since we sell them by the pound.

Do not wash your berries until you are ready to eat them!  Keep them cool after picking or they will degenerate quickly!  We recommend not to pick right after a heavy rain.  Berries need SUN to be sweet!

PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED, BY LAW, IN THE FRONT PICK-YOUR-OWN FIELDS.  You are welcome to bring your dog on a leash and pick up after them, in the other areas of our farm.  We prefer the dog NOT come into the market IF the market is busy and full of customers.  We would be glad to help you to get to the back of the market by walking around.  Just remember that we have free range chickens.  

Strawberries continue into the beginning of June when Blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, Summer veggies, and flowers start to come in!  So bring back your busket for more picking!

Each participating guest will receive an event wristband and family number to enter the Egg Patch!  No mass running to get eggs!  If your family number is at or below the number shown on the LED sign at the entrance to the egg patch, you can go into the patch!

FEE:  The fee is our everyday  $5.00 Family Playgrounds fee PLUS the Easter Event fee of $6.00, for a total of $11.00 per person.  2022 Spring & Summer Season Passholders to the  Family Playgrounds only pay the EVENT FEE of $6.00 per PERSON.

NOTE TO PARENTS:   All children will need an adult to supervise. For those adults not wanting to go into the Event but want your child to participate, the child or children will need at least one adult to supervise, go through the fields, hayrides, etc.  You have the option of paying for just the Family Playgrounds at $5.00 per person, and staying in the Family Playgrounds, as long as the child going to the event has an EVENT paying/supervising adult.  Please be sure that your children get just the 12 eggs each.   Please do not allow them to pick up the eggs, remove the toy and throw the eggs back on the ground opened, or smash/stomp eggs.  An opened egg with nothing inside is very disappointing to the next child coming along!  Thank you!
