Typically available from mid-June to early July, the fields are filled with ripe, juicy strawberries ready for picking. This activity is perfect for families, providing a fun and tasty way to spend a summer day.
  • Raspberries: Following the strawberry season, raspberries become available for picking. These delicious berries are perfect for making jams, desserts, or simply enjoying fresh from the farm. Raspberry picking usually starts in mid-July and continues through August.

Pumpkins U-Pick

Tips for a Great U-Pick Experience

  • Check Availability: U-Pick availability can vary based on the weather and crop conditions. It's a good idea to check The Jungle Farm's website or join their newsletter for the latest updates on what produce is available for picking.
  • Dress Appropriately: Wear comfortable clothing and sturdy shoes suitable for walking in fields. A hat and sunscreen are also recommended, especially during the summer months.
  • Bring Containers: While the farm may provide containers for picking, bringing your own can be helpful, especially if you plan to pick a large quantity of produce.
  • Enjoy the Moment: Take your time to explore the fields, enjoy the fresh air, and savor the experience of picking your own food. It’s a perfect way to create lasting family memories.
