Pick Your Own Veggies

Various options and availability throughout the season

Pick-Your-Own crops are a major component of both Full and Small CSA shares, and your designated amounts may be picked any time during the week that the farmstand is open. Members often enjoy coming back to the farm, separate from their regular share pick-up, to harvest with family members. If you're interested in Pick-Your-Own but aren't a CSA member, just stop by the farmstand to see what's available, and we'll get you started.
  • Included in CSA Membership
  • PYO Veggies are sold by the pint and quart, and herbs are priced by the stem
  • Veggies change in availability as the season progresses, starting with peas and beans and then cherry tomatoes
  • Our Herb garden is currently under construction -- please check in with the Farmstand for details about what's available and where to pick!
  • NEW this season: Peppers!
Please visit the farmstand before you start picking to let us know you're there so that our team can help to minimize how many customers are on the fields at a time. Also, be sure to bring your own scissors and containers, wear a mask while at the farm, and practice social distancing.

Pick Your Own Tips

  • Wait until cherry tomatoes are nice and ripe to pick (they do not continue to ripen)
  • Husk Cherries are ripe and ready to eat when their papery husks turn from green to beige
  • Avoid glassy or shiny pea pods (they are over-mature)
  • Stick to smooth green bean pods (over-mature pods have swollen beans inside)
  • Wear gloves when picking spicy peppers and don’t rub your eyes!
