A Family Activity

Pick Your Own is a Family Activity!

PYO Family ActivityYou can’t get any fresher or more local than picking your own fruits and vegetables! And picking with your family and friends is a very enjoyable experience – a great ‘staycation’ activity or daytrip outing — fun to do with a healthy bonus at the end! There is a lot being written about the Farm to Table meal and the fact that the sooner a fruit or vegetable is consumed after it has been picked, the better tasting and more nutritious it is. And since we are all concerned about reducing our carbon footprint, buying local or picking your own fruits and vegetables means that what you are consuming has not been shipped across the country, burning many gallons of fossil fuel.

PYO Sweet CornAnd the variety you will find at Alstede Farms is vast. We produce over 250 different kinds of fruits and vegetables, all sustainably grown and whether it’s sweet or savory, we have options for all as we have opened all of our fields to you for your picking pleasure. From Strawberries, Blueberries and Raspberries, to Summer Squash, Tomatoes, Corn, Peaches, Apples, Pumpkins and more…there is something for every taste bud! We even have Cut Your Own Flowers!

Pet FriendlyPlease See Our Friendly Pet Policy

For your convenience we have FREE pull wagons available to assist you with transporting your harvest back from the fields.

Please know that your Pick Your Own admission goes directly towards paying our great staff and keeping our family farm permanently preserved, productive, beautiful, clean, and open to the public to enjoy.
