Pick Your Own

Fresh fruit and produce straight from the farm.

We have closed our PYO apples for the season. We hope you were able to come out and enjoy the harvest with us.  Thank you for helping to celebrate 100 years of family farming! We look forward to seeing you all again in the spring for our berry season.

Picking your own fruit at the farm is a great family activity – a fun way to get high quality produce at a reasonable price. We welcome people of all ages to come and enjoy our fresh air and friendly farm atmosphere. Picking and buying locally grown produce is a great way to introduce your children to where our food comes from and how to make better food choices. For up-to-date information, call our Pick-Your-Own hotline at 866-640-PICK, or the Farm Market at 518-765-2956.

PICK-YOUR-OWN TIPS

Every growing season is different. Always call the Farm Market at (518) 765-2956 the day you plan to pick, to ensure that your PYO experience is the best it can be.

Things to keep in mind:

  • Be careful! Remember that this is a working farm. We do our best to watch for pedestrians and small children, but tractors and other vehicles often move around the property.
  • Federal regulations prevent us from allowing dogs or other animals in the growing areas of the farm. Leashed animals are welcome visitors around the outside of the retail area and along the nature trails.
  • Plan a meeting spot when you arrive. It’s easy to lose sight of each other in the orchards and fields.
  • When picking, hold the fruit firmly but gently in your hand. Twist the fruit rather than pulling; ripe fruit will release easily.
  • Bring snacks and plenty to drink.
  • A damp hand towel or paper towels, or disposable wipes, will come in handy.
  • The weather is changeable at the farm. Dress appropriately and bring extra layers.
  • Be prepared! Bring hats, gardening gloves, sunscreen, and bug spray.
  • The farm has many great spots for photographs. Bring a camera or smartphone to record your adventures, then share with family and friends.
  • Please help us by bringing bags for trash removal.
  • Bring a cooler for berries. Don’t leave fruit in a hot car.
