Pick Your Own Cherries! Pick Your Own Raspberries!
The end of June is peak season in New Jersey for cherries as well as various other fruit, like black raspberries. Here's where to pick your own at New Jersey farms. And, coming soon is blueberry-picking and peach-picking season—most active in July and August.
Before You Go!
Always call the farm before you go for a crop update, weather conditions, fees, picking times, and to make sure the farm isn't "picked-out" and closed for picking as a result.
