BERRY PYO: When berries are in season, PYO runs Monday - Saturday 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Bring your own containers, remember cash or checks only and the $5.66 plus tax per person 3 years and over minimum. This is paid before going to the fields and is NOT REFUNDABLE. There are no sprays on the berries so you can eat as many as you'd like while you're out picking in the field. Enjoy! Gonna stick this in here, feedback is lot's of folks don't know how easy berries are to freeze! Our berries. place in quart ziploc. (Strawberries take the top stem off). Don't mash, just fill half way, press down and seal to the fruit - juice line. Lay flat and kinda spread em out. These little berry bricks will keep in your freezer for a year, (at least), till ready to use.
PUMPKIN PYO: Starts the last Friday in September through October 31. Take a hayride to the patch and pick-your-own pumpkin Monday through Friday, 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. | Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. | Sunday 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Walk to the Patch Mon thru Friday 9 to 3. Much more detail below.
