Picking areas are easy to find and clearly marked. Our Pick-Your-Own staff members are very knowledgeable about the fruits you'll be picking and containers for picking and recipe sheets are available at every Pick-Your-Own station. Before coming to pick, always call our 24-hour hotline for up-to-the-minute crop and field conditions, varieties, and current market prices. We update the message as often as necessary (especially in rainy or overcast weather) in order to help you make the best arrangements for your picking trip.
