There’s nothing like heading down the road to your local farm and bringing fresh produce home for the family. Wanna know what I love even more? Heading to the farm and picking our OWN fruits and veggies! Here’s a quick and easy list of pick your own farms for fresh fruits and veggies in Berks County!
Note: Please visit each location’s site to find out their current pick-your-own situation. Crops, weather, and crowds vary from day to day. Check with your destination before leaving the house to avoid frustration. Additionally, many locations have their farm markets at separate locations from the address listed in this post. Please be aware and double check if you are wanting to visit their stand or market instead of their ‘you pick’ location.
Address: 86 Moselem Church Rd., Kutztown, PA 19530
Pick your own: strawberries, blackberries, loganberries, boysenberries, blueberries, elderberries, cherries, cut flower bouquets, and sunflowers
The Berry Farm and Orchard has plentiful pick your own options as well as a stand where you can get pre-picked fruit and other goodies. The orchard also hosts hives for Honey Hollow Apiaries, so their honey and botanicals are available at the stand. As a fun extra offering, I spotted Saturday morning yoga sessions here, too!

Pick your own: strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, peaches, nectarines, donut peaches, apples, pumpkins, tomatoes, sweet peppers, hot peppers, lettuce, sweet onions, cucumber, eggplant, and zucchini
One of my favorite pick your own farms, Brecknock Orchard offers a bounty of pick your own options through the year along with a well-stocked Farm Market (with the best apple cider I’ve ever tasted) and seasonal festivals. Group tours are available and they even offer recipes on their site for the produce you pick!

I’ve never been, but this looks like the kind of place that could become a whole adventure. Frecon Farms has a kitchen, deli, bakery, and a cider and espresso bar. Their site also mentions live music events and fall hayrides!
Address: 33 Perry Lane, Hamburg, PA 19526

We love small pick your own farms that specializes in one fruit! Moselem Meadows is our blueberry patch of choice. Bring your buckets and pick your own blueberries from a whole variety of bushes! I really enjoy the scenic ride out to the location and everyone is always friendly- and they gave me some blueberry freezing tips so we can stock up when we inevitably pick too many to eat.
Address: 1560 Memorial Hwy Oley, PA 19547
Pick your own: strawberries
Prout’s touts (I’m sorry) a wedding venue and a CSA along with their pick your own strawberries! According to Facebook, they also have an adorable dog named Gus and I’m sold.
Address: 120 Schoolhouse Road, Boyertown, PA
Pick your own: cherries
Straight and to the point. Head to Shanesville Fruit Farm for pick your own cherries! The boys and I had a blast when we picked here last year and everyone was so kind. Shanesville also has a market on rt 73 with other fruit available pre-picked.
Address: 40 Fruit Lane Morgantown, PA 19543
