Berry Picking

Russell Orchards :: IpswichWe love spending warm summer days at Crane Beach in Ipswich and then venturing over to the orchard and country store (featuring wine tastings and ice cream!) to pick berries and browse homemade goods. Russell Orchards offers picking for strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries, plus a handy guide to know when everything is in season — strawberries as soon as school is out in June, raspberries around the Fourth of July, blueberries in mid-July, and blackberries later on in the summer. 

Brooksby Farm :: PeabodyFeaturing blueberry, raspberry, and peach picking, this farm has something for everyone throughout the year — and especially in the summer months. Brooksby is home to a variety of animals, so kids can explore the farm and pet and feed the sheep, goats, and other animals in the barnyard! Check their Facebook page for frequently updated information!

Boston Hill Farm :: North AndoverPYO blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries
