Pick-Your-Own Fruit at Weaver’s Orchard

Pick-your-own fruit at scenic Weaver’s Orchard, just south of Reading, Pennsylvania. Come see why people travel from throughout the Mid-Atlantic region to pick our apples, peaches, blueberries, cherries, strawberries and much more! Check the top of any of the crop pages for daily updates and current prices, posted when each crop comes into season. Want more information? Call our market at 610-856-7300 for up-to-the minute reports.


How it Works

  • Containers – All customers must use our (pre-paid) containers. Customers may reuse Weaver’s Orchard containers from a previous visit. Customers may not use their own containers/bowls/baskets from home.  
  • Refunds will not be given (some exceptions may be made due to severe weather)  
  • Each adult (16 years+) admitted into the field must purchase at least one 1-quart container. (One 5-quart bucket is good for 3 adults.)  
  • The PYO Club Card costs $10 and provides 10% off all pick-your-own purchases throughout the season. (Must be renewed annually).
  • We’re sorry but pets and smoking are not permitted in the orchard or the market grounds.
  • Extreme Heat Policy: PYO will close at 1 p.m. on any day the forecast is above 90 degrees.

Payment:

We accept cash, personal check and all major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express). We also take EBT and FMNP checks in pick-your-own or our farm market.

PYO Policies 

  • Children must always remain within arm’s length of an adult.  
  • Customers will need to be able to walk a little distance to arrive to fruit.
  • Follow staff instructions regarding where to pick and remain in your assigned row.
  • No eating will be allowed in the field to reduce contamination.  
  • No loitering – picnics in the field or parking lot are not permitted. We encourage you to take your fruit home and wash it before consumption. 
  • No wristbands or admission fees will be required this year.
