We Grow, U-Pick

We are excited to host U-Pick days at the farm. Families, groups and individuals can join us at the farm on designated U-Pick dates throughout the season, and connect with nature and pick mouthwatering, fragrant and delicious organic fruit.

 

Your entry fee of $25 supports our work at the farm, good health, and uplifts the local economy. In the U-Pick program, you harvest, we weigh, and you pay by the pound. We are happy to be able to share the bounty and the experience of the harvest with our community in this way. If you cannot join us in person and you would still like to support us, we ask that you make a tax deductible donation to our brand new non-profit arm of EARTHseed Farm. Your thoughtful gift will help us carry out our permaculture design mission.

 

Thank you for the many ways you support our farm, our work, and our community.
