*GRAPES ARE STARTING TO COME IN! As of 7/16/24-Catawba grapes have come in. By about 7/25/24 we should have Concord, Niagra, Norton

*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).  It is an aerated basket/bucket.  We encourage you to wash and store your berries in it.  Put your name on it and 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.  We do not tare/take the weight off of outside containers.

Do not wash your berries until you are ready to eat them!  Keep them cool after picking or they will degenerate quickly!

PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED, BY LAW, IN THE FRONT PICK-YOUR-OWN PRODUCE PATCHES.   You are welcome to bring your dog on a leash and pick up after them, in the GRASSY AREAS OR 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.  🙂

  • A quart equals 1 and 1/2 pounds of fresh  berries. 1 quart = 2 pints = 4 cups and is about the same as 1 liter and weighs 1.25 lbs to 1.5 lbs (or 600 to 700g). The weight varies on variety and weather conditions.  1 quart is normally enough for 4 servings.
  • Unripe berries will not ripen once picked. Select plump, firm, fully red berries. Be sure to pick the berry from the stem and leave the hulls on.
  • Keep the out of the sun and heat after picking. Berries quickly mold and perish when left at room temperature, and only last about 2 to 3 days in the refrigerator.
  • You can easily freeze berries that you cannot use right away.  Wash, cut the hulls off and put the berries into a ziplock bag, removing as much air as possible.  The berries will keep for many months frozen without air.
  • Braehead Farm berries are not sprayed with pesticides.  The plants (before bearing fruit) may get a trickle fungicide during the winter.  The fungicide we use is on the Green list.
  • If you would  like to help the farmer, please pick off any berries you see that have rot, insect or sun damage and put them between the rows.  This helps to keep rot from spreading to the other berries on the plant.
