Wristbands:

We require wristbands for everyone entering the pick-your-own areas, which allows us to identify people who are in the orchard as paying pick-your-own customers. This leads to greater security for us and for you, ensuring that everyone who is on the property is accounted for. It is also a way for us to keep overall costs down by ensuring that everyone is paying for the fruit they pick.

WRISTBANDS ARE FREE ON NON PEAK DAYS – MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY, excluding holidays.

  • Wristbands are always free for children five years old and younger who are accompanied by a paying parent or legal guardian.
  • Wristbands are $2 for customers 6 years old and up on peak days (Fridays, Saturdays, Independence Day, Labor Day and Columbus Day in 2018).
A $10 pick-your-own discount card provides 10% off all pick-your-own purchases throughout the season. (Most customers find this card pays for itself within the first two visits.)

Black Raspberries

Season: Late June.

Pricing for black raspberries:  

  • $4.50 /pound for over 10 pounds
  • $4.99 /pound for under 10 pounds

Black Raspberry Picking Tips

  • Avoid all the red berries.  They are not red raspberries, just unripe black ones!  Pick only berries that are such a deep purple they are almost black.
  • Ripe berries separate from the bush easily. You should be able to just roll your fingers across them into your bucket.
  • Don’t fill containers too full. The berries are delicate and will crush easily, especially on a hot summer day.  If you need more containers, we’re happy to supply them!

Red Raspberry Picking Tips
