General Pick Your Own Information:
Alstede Farms offers a variety of fruits and vegetables that you can pick yourself in our fields and orchards. We’re open every day during harvest season which begins in late May or early June and ends in early November. Items available for picking vary depending on month and season. You can view our general harvest schedule as a guideline of what we typically offer for picking each year. The availability and items may vary as weather and other conditions can affect crops and harvest timing.
To know what’s available for picking now, see our “what can I pick today page“.
Tickets must be purchased in advance on our website.
Pick Your Own Helpful Tips:
Coming to the farm is a fun way to enjoy the outdoors and actually see where your food is grown. Although there are tractor drawn wagon rides available around the farm, you may need to walk through the fields and orchards as you pick, so we recommend that you wear comfortable, farm friendly shoes, stay hydrated, wear sunscreen, and maybe a hat on those hot, sunny days. We have pull carts on site to assist you with your harvest available on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Handicap Accessible Hay Wagons:
We offer handicap accessible hay wagon rides for those needing that service. Please click here to learn more.
All ticket sales are final. We do not offer refunds or exchanges. We do not offer refunds due to weather. All pick your own activities subject to change without notice due to weather conditions. This farm is a smoke free environment. We do not allow smoking in the fields, orchards, market, or tented areas.
Please bring photo id and credit card used to purchase online ticket(s) with you to the event in order to gain access. All online orders include handling fee of one dollar ($1.00).
