Where to Pick Your Own Berries in NY, NJ, and CT; young girl picking raspberries

Plump, ripe berries are making their way onto produce shelves right about now, but what could be sweeter than watching your kids scour a local sundrenched farm field for their own basket of fruit? Well, joining in the fun yourself! Stock up on the season's juicy raspberries, blueberries and peaches - picking your own is a great way for the family to pass a lazy afternoon and save a little money on your grocery bill - then head home and bake some fruit-filled goodies with your kids' help (peach pie or blueberry muffins, anyone?).

 When you head to one of the farms below, keep in mind that all dates are projected, and produce availability is subject to change. Calling ahead before visiting any of these locations is highly recommended.
