Seedless Grapes - Open for Picking!Grape fields are open!
Please bring snippers for harvesting.
Table grapes are harvested in bunches.
The bunch must be cut off from the main stem using snippers.
It is very important NOT to tear bunches from the vine.
Grape vines are easily hurt and damaged.
Check out our Picking Tips for "How to Pick Table Grapes"
Always check in with the staff before going into the fields to pick grapes. Please also always respect the caution tape if you see it in the field. Grapes will visually appear ripe before they are actually sweet and ready to be harvested and we use the caution tape to let you know when areas are not ready yet.
Blueberries - Peak of Season!Now is the time to fill your freezer!
Blueberries are easy to freeze and
frozen berries are great for
pancackes, muffins, pies, and fruit smoothies!
Blueberries will continue to mid to late August.
STILL Blackberries!It is still good picking in the blackberries.
Best picking is the early morning,
then, given a chance to recover over the afternoon,
