Pick-Your-Own Berries Across Vermont

After a long cold winter and a rainy mud season, June strawberries are a very welcome kick off to a sweet summer and fall.  From late-spring strawberries and raspberries, to summertime sour cherries, blueberries and fall raspberries, these local spots have a lot to offer throughout the warmer seasons. It doesn't get better than freshly picked berries, especially when those berries are grown so close to home!

Plan your summer around PYO berry season. We sure do! Below is a list split up by county to encourage you to go pick-your-own for every season! Be sure to always call the farm before your visit to verify their pick-your-own hours.

From June to November, anyone and everyone is welcome to come picking at Champlain Orchards. Strawberries are ready to pick throughout the rest of June.  In past years there have been cherries (sweet and tart), summer raspberries, currants, summer plums, and blueberries (very limited.) Be sure to check their website to find out when the following fruits will be ripe for the picking: blackberries, peaches, nectarines, elderberries, fall plums, fall raspberries, Asian pears, and early, mid, and late season apples.

Lewis Creek Farm, Starksboro

June is the month for strawberries. They start the month with strawberries from their high tunnel and end the month with outdoor strawberries. Somewhere along the way, they will be open for pick-your-own. Traditionally, strawberry season started with the first day of Summer, June 21st, and lasted through July 4th or even mid-July. In the last few years, the season has started a bit earlier and they have often begun picking by June 12th or so, but this means that they rarely have any berries left by the 4th of July. 

Stay tuned for Pick-Your-Own hours!
