There is something about picking your own fruit! It’s a great way to support local farmers, get outside, make memories, and have a reward of juicy delicious berries! These farms are open or will be soon and would love to see you!
*We recommend checking each farm’s Facebook page as most provide updates with what is ready for picking, changes in hours, and if they happen to run out!

As of April 2023, Buffalo Creek Berry Farm is currently open for (light) strawberry picking!

Check their Facebook page for hours, as they adjust daily and are determined by crop availability. They also have other in-season produce to pick!

Tips and Tricks
- Always call ahead before packing the kids up – farming can be affected dramatically by weather, low fruit supply, and more!
- Wear comfortable shoes – now is not the time for flip-flops! You may be doing a lot of walking and/or navigating muddy trails.
- Bring water to keep yourself and your kids hydrated! You can also check with the farm or orchard as they may have tables where you can bring your own picnic lunches as well!
- Bring cash unless you have checked with the farm to ensure that they accept credit cards or other methods of payment!
