Fall isn’t just apple picking season; there are still berries left for enjoyment. We’ve checked out the farms, and these all feature fall raspberries. As with all U-pick farms, please be sure to call ahead or check the website and Facebook pages for picking conditions. Crowd size and weather can impact the field conditions and the availability of berries. Farms can close or stop picking at any time.
