Pick-Your-Own crops are included as part of your share! They are available to pick any day of the week during daylight hours. Check the box to the right to see what is available. When you come to the farm, you can check the picking locations and weekly limits on the brown-and-yellow sign near the distribution tent. Containers and clippers are provided, though you may bring your own if you wish.
Each year we offer an abundance of Pick-Your-Own (PYO) crops at the farm. Most of your share will be harvested and washed for you to pick up at the farm or in your delivered box. However, shares also include PYO crops to give farm members the opportunity to get out in the field and pick items like flowers, beans, peas, herbs, and more.
Whether you pick up your share here at the farm or have a delivered box share, we encourage all members to come and enjoy the farm!
PYO crops will vary with the season.
Here are a few of the PYO crops you can enjoy:
- Sugar snap and snow peas
- Green, wax and purple beans
- Cherry tomatoes
- Flowers, an array of fragrant and colorful varieties
