U-PICK VEGETABLE TOUR

Friday, November 16 at 10am and 2pm

What is it? This is a FREE, guided wagon ride around the farm, where you will be able to pick your own fresh fruits and vegetables in the field! This tour takes 45 min to 1 1/4 hours.  Remember to wear closed-toe shoes as you will be walking through the fields which may be muddy and uneven.  Also, the wagon ride and fields are not shaded, so hats and sunscreen are recommended.

How Does it Work? U-Pick Tours are seasonal and take place when we have an abundance of crops. Times are announced when tours become available and no reservations are necessary; simply arrive 15-20 min prior to the announced time so you don't miss the tractor.

What Can We Pick? Vegetable picking is seasonal and based on availability, but U-Pick produce this week will include Broccoli, Cauliflower, Kale, Lettuce, and Carrots!

How Much Does it Cost? There is no admission and the wagon ride is free.  Pay for what you've picked at the end of your tour. Everything is priced the same as our Produce Market Stand.  For example, carrots are sold by the bunch.

NO RESERVATION REQUIRED. Please arrive 20 minutes beforehand to check in.
