Organic Vegetables and Berries
About the Club
For non-members looking for U-Pick strawberries: sorry, our farm isn’t open to the public. Picking is by membership ONLY. However, not far from us, Blue House Farm on Rte. 84 in San Gregorio is open to anyone for berry picking on weekends. The U-Pick Club offers the chance to experience more intimately the source of your food. From June to November, Club Members come to the farm on Mondays from 3:45 - 7:00 to harvest their own vegetables, berries and herbs. Members have access to harvest crates and tools and look for the weekly harvest list once they arrive at the farm stand. No green thumbs or harvest experience necessary! The farmers instruct periodically on how to properly harvest. U-Pick Members experience their food very intimately – to understand the seasons, to see first-hand the work that goes into growing food, and to appreciate and enjoy being connected to the source of their food. Kids are welcome and encouraged to come! A season offers approximately 23 harvests. A single payment of $275 includes Member Fees and 8 harvest visits. Additional harvests cost $25 each.

A Closer Look at the Produce
The greatest opportunity that our U-pick Club allows our members is eating through an incredible range of produce throughout the growing season: more than 40 different crops! Strawberries and spring greens come on early, along with onions, radishes, Japanese turnips and cilantro. Summertime introduces raspberries, squash, basil, green beans and cucumbers. Finally, the warm days of fall transition to dry-farmed tomatoes, potatoes, winter squash, carrots, Brussels sprouts, dry heirloom beans and hardy roots. Like most of our members, you may find that eating exactly what is in season connects you to the land and your environment in a profound way. All U-Pick Members are free to harvest herbs from our gardens. You might gather a few soup herbs such as oregano, thyme, sage and rosemary or others for fresh tea: lemon verbena, mint, lemon balm and chamomile.
