Our u-pick raspberry season is officially over, but we will still have u-pick flowers until the first frost. HoneyBee U-pick will be open from 8 AM – 12 PM on SATURDAYS ONLY until Oct. 28. The dahlias are absolutely stunning right now for $1/stem! We also will have Tantre Farm produce, Jacob’s Fresh Farm honey, Elder Farms eggs, and Marc Boone’s paw paws available for sale as long as we can during these next few weeks.
However, we have opened a SELF SERVE produce wagon stand with a Payment Box, so you can come all week long to get produce, such as sweet corn, carrots, potatoes, onions, garlic, winter squash, and now PUMPKINS, even if our raspberry patch is not open. All sorts of pumpkins and squash are ripening, so they will continue appearing on the produce wagon more and more! A very small u-pick flower garden of dahlias, strawflower, globe amaranth, and sunflowers is still open now for picking. Stay tuned for updates!
Please use the form at the bottom of this page to add yourself to our mailing list for updates on U-pick opportunities this year. Thank you for your support.
WHAT TO DO?
Follow the painted signs to the Honey Bee U-pick patch, which is approximately at 5700 Scio Church Rd when using GPS. You will see a newly constructed timber frame barn when you enter the driveway in the middle of a field. Look for these signs as you approach the corner of Zeeb and Scio Church roads:
$6/pint – U-pick
$4/half pint – Already Picked
Where to Park?
The attendant will tell you where to park or follow the pattern of the other cars. There is lots of parking at this site!
Other Important Reminders:
Check in with attendant when you arrive, since they will show you the best rows to pick. They will have a First Aid Kit on hand for minor injuries.
Porta Potty at this location, but otherwise no electricity or water.
Masks are not required at this site, since it is outside, but please feel free to wear one, if you are more comfortable. Please be kind and polite to each other during these difficult times as “you picking” should be about “community building”!
You can pay with Cash, Check to “Tantre Farm”, or Venmo to @Deb-Lentz. We are not able to process credit cards at this time unless you are willing to pay the 3% PayPal fee. We do have a QR code for PayPal available.
WHAT TO BRING?
-Take-Home Containers – We will have pint containers for you to pick into, and trays to take them home if you are picking lots, but you may bring your own.
-Comfortable clothing – if you’ve ever picked berries before, you know that you may get hot and dirty, depending on the weather, so bring a hat, light clothing, and closed toed shoes. This patch is a bit weedy with some nettles, lambs quarters, and thistles. Since this farm is being renovated the patch is not tilled and we are using organic practices, so long pants might also be helpful for the weeds if needed.
