Nope, just come during our u-pick hours.

​​​​​​​Will you have any pre-picked raspberries that I can purchase at the counter?

No, but you can purchase pre-picked berries for farm pick up via our Online Store. We update our inventory daily so what is on the site is what we have on-hand available for purchase. ​​​​​​​



Can I taste test the raspberries in before paying?

No. We understand that tasting freshly picked raspberries is a delightful part of the picking experience, but due to updated food and safety regulations taste testing in the patch is no longer permitted. 


Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!



Are children permitted in the raspberry patch?

Unfortunately due to a lot of "free-range parenting" last season our child(ren) policy has been updated. Please note the following:


  • Yes, well behaved child(ren) are permitted in the raspberry patch. 
  • We do require ONE adult for every TWO children in the patch. 
  • It is your responsibility to ensure your child(ren) are staying in your assigned row, not taste testing raspberries, picking unripe berries and/or throwing berries... yes this really happens.  If they pick any unripe berries you are still required to pay for them. If they are caught throwing berries they will be asked to leave the patch and return to your personal vehicle. 

We appreciate your cooperation in helping us keep the u-picks enjoyable for all guests. 



​​​​​​​Can I bring a wagon or stroller?

No. The rows are too narrow. 



​​​​​​​Do I need to bring my own container?
No. We provide you with a container. You provide the fun and the memories.

Appropriate footwear and clothing. The ground is rough or uneven in spots, the patch is in full sun and all the raspberries have thorns.

Are your raspberries organic?
While we are not a certified organic farm we do grow everything as if we were. We work very hard to ensure our plants and trees are happy and healthy as they will yield sweeter and more delicious fruits. We also utilize cover crops to feed the bees and to increase pollination as well as to put nutrients back into the soil.
