We Grow, U-Pick

We are excited to host U-Pick days Saturdays 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.

You can book an appointment to visit on a week-by-week basis. We release new appointments on Tuesdays prior to Saturday U-Pick days. Unfortunately, we are not able to schedule your appointment further in advance. Please check our website for updates as new appointments slots become available each week.

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. 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.

Note: No U-Pick Oct 16th. U-Pick resumes the next week, Oct 23rd with appointments available on our site starting Oct 19th at 7 am.
