Let’s all agree. Fresh produce always tastes best, especially when you pick it yourself. U-pick season is officially starting here in Western New York, and we are so ready for it!
U-pick season can be fun for all ages. So if you’re looking for an activity the whole family can enjoy, add picking your own produce to your summer bucket list.
Becker Farms is the ideal destination for picking all sorts of fruits this summer, starting with strawberries.
Here’s everything you need to know about U-Pick Season at Becker Farms:
This bright red, juicy fruit is officially in season starting on June 12. When you arrive, head over to the farm market to buy your picking containers. From there, the staff will direct you to the field you’ll be picking in.
U-pick is $5 for kids and $6 for adults, which includes 1 quart of strawberries per person. If you want more berries, you can add a 4 quart bucket for $21 or share a bucket between 4 people.
Next comes cherries at the end of June/beginning of July, raspberries at the beginning of July, blueberries mid-July through mid-August, and of course apple picking in the fall. You can find the latest updates on the official picking dates on their website.
