NOW ON: Strawberries!!

Brooks Farms offers a variety of seasonal pick-your-own fruit and pick-your-own vegetables. All of our produce is also available PRE-PICKED in our farm market for those who prefer not to pick.

Please note that for 2017, we will be implementing a MINIMUM PICKING FEE that must be prepaid before entry into our Pick-Your-Own fields.

NEW POLICY:
For Strawberries:  Each customer must prepay $3.00/person entering the Pick Your Own Field.  This amount will be used as a credit towards all berries picked.
Example:  2 People picking at $3/ person is $6 to enter the field.  The customers pick $12 worth of berries (weighed in at $2.55/lb) minus the credit $6, so a balance of $6 is owing.

For Raspberries:  Each customer must prepay $4.00/person before entering our Pick Your Own Field.  This amount will be used as a credit towards all berries picked.

PICK YOUR OWN INFORMATION

  • Please bring your own baskets or containers to pick into. If you’ve forgotten we offer (as a convenience) baskets to purchase for $1.50 each. This is for the basket only. Fruit is priced by weight, so you pay for what you pick.
  • There is a $3 prepaid charge per customer entering our Strawberry Fields ($4 for Raspberries).   This amount is credited towards the final amount of berries picked.
  • All customers entering the fields must have a basket or container to pick into.
  • Fruit must be purchased before consumed. Although we don’t mind you sampling a berry or two, if we permitted everyone to snack, we would not have a crop to sell. Think of this policy much as you would shopping in a grocery store, eating unpaid produce would be considered stealing.
  • Children are welcome in our fields, but the same rules apply. They must each have a helper container and understand our no snacking policy.
  • Strawberries should be rinsed thoroughly before eating.
  • Wear appropriate clothing and footwear for the fields/conditions. A sun hat and sun screen is a must.
  • Pricing: Pick-Your-Own is generally about half the price of pre picked fruit.
