PICK YOUR OWN CALENDAR

Our Pick Your Own Calendar

Check out our completed growing calendar below for what's ready to be picked this season at the orchard.  And visit our picking info guide for helpful tips to make your picking visit extraordinary.

Late JUNE / early july

Sweet Cherries:

Most years, cherries are only available for two weekends, so drop everything and come pick!

 

Spray-Free Blueberries:

Meanwhile our spray-free blueberries get down to business with a dozen long rows of beautifully ripe berries ready for picking.

 

Mid JULY

Blueberries, Plums & Raspberries:

Blueberries are still on the scene and are joined by plums - purple and yellow - and raspberries!  

 

Tomatoes:

On the vegetable side, our beautiful tomatoes are starting to ripen. Heirloom, plum, and cherry tomatoes (gold and red) are all available for picking. 

 

Early AUGUST

Peaches:

Sweet and juicy. Remember that they will still be firm when you pick them but they’ll ripen after 2-4 days on the kitchen counter. No refrigerator please!

 

Blueberries, Plums, Raspberries, Tomatoes & Corn:

Blueberries, plums and raspberries are still available, and the tomatoes are going strong. Fresh corn for sale too.

 

Late AUGUST

Early Apples:

Now we see the early apples like Zestar and Ginger Gold, a harbinger of crisp autumn days to come.  

 

Blueberries, Peaches, Raspberries, Tomatoes & Corn:

The last of the blueberries finish up. But there are still peaches and tomatoes to pick and even a few raspberries for those willing to brave the prickly canes on which they’re hiding. 

 

SEPTEMBER

Apples Galore:

We have your favorites, like Honeycrisp, MacIntosh, Cortland, Macoun, and Snapdragon, but why not try some of the exciting new apples like Summerset, Sweet Maia, and Sweet Zinger only available at Mead.
