The middle of June is peak season in New Jersey for cherries (though some varieties don’t start until later in the summer). Some may require advance tickets, and due to the weather, it is always a safe bet to call ahead. 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. Here are the NJ farms slated to have pick your own cherries this summer.
