Pick Your Own in Vermont

Find a Vermont Orchard or Patch

The best way to enjoy produce is sun-ripened and plucked right from the vine. Vermont's focus on fresh food, locally produced, means there's no shortage of places to pick; all summer and fall you can take your time finding the perfect fruits and veggies at pick-your-own farm stands. In addition to cool-weather crops like kale and winter squash, October is the perfect time to pick your own pumpkins and apples. Make a family day of it! Many pick-your-own pumpkin and apple farms feature hot cider, donuts or horse-drawn wagon rides.
