  People find blackberry picking to be a very special and unique experience. Not only is it fun and relatively easy to fill a container, our 1.5 acres of blackberry fields are located within an easy walking distance from the main gate. Blackberries are a large, juicy berry with a sweet-tart taste. The season usually stretches from early August into September.

  Blueberries are one of the favorite summer fruits to pick. Our highbush blueberry plants are found in two locations on the farm, some of which are quite close to the main gate for easy access. We have customers who come several times a week to pick and preserve blueberries during the season every year from our two acres of bushes. The picking experience is usually very pleasant due to the convenient location, the comfortable height of the plants, and the lack of prickers or thorns.

  Our raspberry offerings include some in red, black, and even purple. We grow several varieties in just over three acres of land. Ripening in early July, and lasting into August, raspberry picking can be a wonderful summer family activity. Especially good for preserving in jams, jellies, and pies, raspberries are an excellent source of fiber and antioxidants. They also freeze very well for future use in smoothies or pancakes.

  Apple picking can begin as early as late August and last through October, but it all depends on the weather, the crop yield, and the amount of pickers who come. We have ten varieties of pick-your-own apples that open and close as they ripen and then get picked out. Be familiar with the varieties available on the days and times you would like to come, as the availability of varieties changes several times throughout the picking season. The most current status of Pick-Your-Own apples is available in the column on the left, in the PYO box on the home page, or by calling 978-356-5366.

  We have 24 varieties of strawberries located in three fields covering three and a half acres. The most prolific varieties include AC Wendy, a large early berry with excellent flavor; Annapolis, another early berry with large, beautiful fruit; Jewel, a popular mid-season variety with superb flavor; and Winona, a late-mid-season berry bearing beautiful, conical fruit of excellent flavor and quality. There are also lots of small, sweet berries, which are sometimes the most flavorful. Pick-your-own strawberries usually opens by early to mid-June and can be over by the 4th of July. We like to remind people that when schools let out for the summer, they need to plan their strawberry picking outing. Our strawberry plants are covered with a layer of actual straw in the winter to protect them from cold damage.
