Pick Your Own – Lots of Fruit, Lots of Fun
At last, an activity the whole family can do together that’s actually fun! It provides exercise, lots of fresh air, and something to take home for your efforts.
So, come to Terhune Orchards and pick your own berries, apples, pumpkins and flowers!
Terhune Orchards starts harvesting with the first crop of asparagus in late April. In May, ripe strawberries are ready. Then June brings cherries (sweet and sour) and blueberries. In July, juicy blackberries are ripe. September is apple season and October brings pumpkins – all available as pick your own.
Call the farm store at 609-924-2310 or look at the Pick-Your-Own Schedule to check on availability — each season brings a slightly different timing.
Fall and apples go together at Terhune Orchards. The dwarf trees are easy for all ages to reach. No ladders or long poles are needed. Our apples are juicy, crisp and delicious — with many varieties to choose from!! Apples at the Pick Your Own farm are by bag. All guests 4 years and older purchase bag at Check-in. Apple Picking is at our 13 Van Kirk Road Orchard, right around the corner from the main farm.
Don’t forget to pick your own pumpkins in our Cold Soil Road pumpkin patch. With so many to choose from, you’re sure to find just the perfect pumpkin for you. Pumpkin picking starts the third weekend in September. Saturday & Sunday admission required for pumpkin patch.
First Pick Your Own of the season in April, this fresh spring crop is easy to pick. Just snap at the base of the stem, no tools required. Asparagus stalks grow up to 2 inches each day, so come back often for fresh picking!
First fruit of the Pick Your Own season, welcome summer with juicy berries. You will quickly pick your baskets full.
Cherry season goes by fast. If you wait until “next weekend” to pick cherries, you may be too late. We have sweet and tart varieties. And, in June, toward the end of the month, picking will be “ready, set, go,” because the season is still “short and sweet” – Gary Mount explains about cherry season.
Two acres of bushes loaded with blueberries. A special net keeps the birds away from the sweet berries and leaves plenty for the pickers. The bushes are loaded with berries lasting from the end of June to early August.
If you love blackberries, Terhune Orchards is the place to go. When picking these berries, look for ones that are all the way black and that slip easily off their stems and into your hand. We grow THORNLESS blackberries – makes these berries easier to pick. About three times the size of raspberries, these high-quality blackberries ripen late July to mid-August.
