¨ No pets in the produce patches, and no row jumping/walking across the plants.  Stay in your picking rows.  Keep children with you at all times.

THERE IS NEVER AN ADMISSION TO THE PICK-YOUR-OWN FIELDS, you just pay for what you pick. All produce is sold by-the-pound.  (The only admission area is The Family Playgrounds where the farm animals are, additional picnic areas, hay barn, play equipment, event barns. This area is $5.00 plus tax, per person, age 2 and under free)

FYI: PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED, BY LAW, IN THE FRONT PICK-YOUR-OWN produce patches.  They must stay on the grassy areas.   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 assist you to walk around the market to the Family Playgrounds. And remember, we have free range chickens!  

We accept cash, check, and credit card!
