Note that outside baskets or containers are not allowed. The picking boxes are 75 cents each — but they are reusable! Each box can hold $15-$20 worth of berries. Be prepared to do a whole lot of squatting to reach the low-lying berry plants.

We recommend wearing comfortable shoes and breezy clothing. Be sure to apply sunscreen — there is zero shade in the fields, so the sun is strong. Sweet Berry Farm is cash and check only, so be prepared. An ATM is located on site.

The farm cultivates a hedge maze over the summer, which is shaped just in time for the fall season. Visitors can explore a field of zinnias and pick their own flowers. The cost includes the flowers, a vase, and water.
