U PICK

Berries and Seasons

Here are some of our berries we will be available for the "pick your own section" 

  • Blue Berries
  • Red Currents
  • Raspberries
  • Goji berries
  • Black Currents
  • Strawberries 
  • Elderberry
  • Aronia berries
  • Honey Berries


I dare you to research a few of these berries, especially currents, 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 smoothy, why not?  


We aim to grow everything organically.  Although not officially certified organic yet (hopefully all paperwork will be done by 2020-2021, and yes it's pricey, that's a good reason to buy them cheaper now) - we are committed to using all organic fertilizer, mulch, and other weed preventers to insure the health of our products and customers.  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.
