Picking your own fruit is one of the many treasures of summer family memories.

Other berries for picking throughout the summer include blackberries, raspberries and blueberries. Scroll down to find a favorite farm near you.

As of August 13, 2020: Cherries are done. Blueberries are nearing the end. Raspberries coming around mid-August. Blackberries can be picked through mid-September. You can also find peaches, nectarines and plums on many of these farms. Call first about the peaches and nectarines as many crops were damaged by frost earlier in the growing season.
