What's in season in January 2018, and other
Notes for January 2018: Strawberries have a very brief season;
and they start in early April in the South, May in most of the US, and early June in the North - don't miss them: See your
crop availability calendar for more specific dates of upcoming crops.
And see our guide to local
vegetable festivals, such as
strawberry festivals and
blueberry festivals. Cold weather crops, like spinach,
some lettuces, peas, kale, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, leeks and
early onions being harvested in all but the coldest regions. Many farms and markets still
have fresh winter squash, stored from last Autumn.
You may noticed the new appearance to the website! Simpler, cleaner and
mobile-friendly! I'm rolling it out, page by page over the next 2 months. Everything is still here; you can access it from the drop down menus at the top of the page or the site search.

WEATHER DEPENDENT and it has been open as early as the later part of July
and has closed as late as Halloween;

Raspberry field. Directions:
See their website for directions. Payment: Cash, Visa/MasterCard . No
herbicides or pesticides are used on the crop, and customers often eat their
berries straight from the vine. The U Pick It Field is a perfect family
outing. CHILDREN LOVE IT; many of them have never had the opportunity to
actually harvest the food they eat. DOGS, on leashes love to pick up the
berries dropped on the ground, especially labradors, and more particularly,
yellow ones. (UPDATED: May 3, 2015, JBS) (ADDED: August 02, 2010, suggested by a visitor)
A visitor writes on September 07, 2013: "I was very disappointed that
I drove 200 miles to pick raspberries at this ranch. Upon our arrival we
were told that we could only pick 6 pounds of berries. I have never been to
any you pick it, that limited the amount you can pick and I complained to
the field person and the store clerk before I left. I would not have driven
200 miles if they had posted the limit on their web site which I reviewed
this morning before left. Please post and advisory that people who are
driving a long way should call first to see if they have set a limit, that
makes the drive not worth the time or cost. "
