Unless you picked before and would like to come pick your favorite berries, or if you are new but have a larger quantity or time frame to pick berries, we will not be serving the U-Pick part of this farm. Due to lack of interest and needing to work other jobs to pay for the Farm's operations...we can't just schedule everyone. The picking will need to be worked around our schedules, even more than before and carry some minimum purchase orders. Thanks for your understanding and hope you can buy fresh frozen berries from us or get enough time or people around to make it a great day. It never hurts to ask and state when or what your needs might be...just email, call, or message on Facebook.

We STILL have fresh frozen Elderberries from 2023 crop (Black Currants and Aronia are sold out) - if you are interested...email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-608-732-3400
PLEASE MAKE AN APPOINTMENT on my Facebook page: Go to https://www.facebook.com/lancashirefarms/
and click on the "BOOK NOW" button to see available times and I'll confirm if you can pick at that time or suggest another time or date, if that date has the limit on pickers for that specific crop.
Here are some of our berries we will be available for the "pick your own section"
I dare you to research a few of these berries, especially currants, Aronia, Goji, and Elderberry. Several Universities and even old cultural stories tell of the chemical and medicinal healing/healthy properties of these berries. If you are an American, you most likely enjoy the health benefits and taste of blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries, but if you could add some serious percentage of vitamin C and other healthy minerals to your smoothie, why not?
We aim to grow everything organically. Although not officially certified organic yet (hopefully all paperwork will be done later (anyone want to help with that?) and yes it's pricey, that's a good reason to buy them cheaper now) - we aim to use all organic fertilizer, mulch, and other weed preventers for better products. Good old hand-weeding almost put me in the hospital in 2018. Therefore, our U Pick section is not going to be HUGE in the first few years, but Raspberries, Elderberry, Aronia, and Goji berries (and Grapes by 2020-2021) should be large enough. There are no promises, because first come, first serve has to be our policy. However, every plant ripens at a different time, so grab what you can, when you can, and have a few hours of family open air fun.
Here's are a few articles to help peak your interest in healthy berries:
Happy Reading...and come pick some healthy produce from us soon! Just off County K on Mt Zion Rd - right side....signs point the way! (outside Lancaster, i.e. Lancashire - the farm land around Lancaster)
Goji Berry on Lancashire Farms, they are super healthy and grow wonderfully in Wisconsin
