Berry Picking Weekends

June has ARRIVED! We are celebrating summer in the best way we know how around here…and that is with endless orchard visits and berry-picking/eating. Check out some of the juicy farms near you and plan a berry-picking weekend escape (see below). Or, if you’re looking for a berry-picking escape all packaged up for you, hop on our Dutchess Fruit Farms & Berry Picking Weekend with hop on / hop off shuttle! Explore the culinary mecca and historic town of Rhinebeck and visit the bountiful pick-your-own berry and fruit farms of Dutchess County. Pending fruit availability, stops could include Greig FarmRose Hill Farm and Mead Orchards.
