The kids and I visited The Berry Patch Farm in Nevada the other day. We headed there to pick some raspberries and apples. This is our second time at this U-pick farm. We went last month and picked our own blueberries.
We picked roughly 15lbs of apples and a little over 1 1/2 lbs of raspberries. I would have loved to pick a few more raspberries for freezing but there just wasn't too many left.
The apples were a great deal. This farm is well known for their honeycrisp apples and they are delicious! We picked a few pounds of them and then some other varieties (I am not sure what they are called, they are a little tarter). If you pick apples off the tree they are $2 a pound for the honeycrisp and $1 a pound for the other varieties. If you pick off the ground they are half price! Since it was such a windy day when we were there, there was apples everywhere. We picked all our apples off the ground and only paid about $10.
Next year I plan to pick alot more berries from there and preserve them for the year. How about you, have you ever been to a U-pick farm?
