Pick your own Raspberries are sold by the litre. You can use your own litres or use our 2 litre baskets, 3 litre baskets or 4 litre baskets. If temperatures are very hot, berries will ripen overnight, so don’t wait. Raspberries ripen evenly at the top, middle, and bottom of the cane so move leaves back to harvest evenly. The Raspberry will pull off easily from the inner core when ripe. Do not overfill baskets – you don’t want to crush the berries on the bottom. Harvest is mid July to early August.

Pick your own Peaches are sold by the 11 quart baskets. We provide picking containers but you can bring your own 11 quarts. You do need to bring your own boxes to transport your peaches home. Peaches are within arm’s reach so you do not need a ladder. Pick peaches that have a golden flesh and red blush. Peaches on the top outside branches will ripen first. Our peach varieties are freestone. This means the flesh comes off the pit easily when ripe. Harvest is mid August to late August.

Thaw your peaches 1 of 3 ways:

  1. Microwave 20-30 seconds on side and the other until the peach is thawed the way you like it. Peel skin, slice and pit.
  2. Hold peach under warm tap water while peeling off skin.
  3. Take peach out of freezer and put into fridge on a plate overnight.

We like our peaches a little frozen to keep the milk cold in our cereal.
Really thawed peaches for a fruit smoothie.

Still firm for Peach crisp.

The skin is a substitute for lemon or ascorbic acid.  The skin stops the oxidation. The peach doesn’t turn brown.
