White and yellow peaches will be available Tuesday and Wednesday. Honey, sunflowers and jam should be at the stand too.
Picking is not looking favorable for blueberries for those 2 days. There are more green than blue ones right now. Picking will be better by Thursday.
If wind and rain come – though it doesn’t look that way now!- we may stay under the tent but look for us in the stand if the tent is empty!

They’re big, blue and plentiful, easy to pick and will continue for a while longer.
(Raspberries are finished for this year)
On the stand there are are yellow and white peaches from our earliest varieties, sunflowers, honey from the orchard hives and jam.
We’ll be open on Tuesday through Saturday, 9am – 4pm.
Blueberries are rapidly turning blue.
There should be some raspberries to pick early in the week and
Peaches at the stand.
It’s not surprising that people would like to get outside, pick berries off the bushes and soak up some sunshine and many enjoyed doing just that this week. We’ll be open today, Saturday July 18, but think you will find better picking next week. If you come to pick be ready to hunt for them, looking inside and under the branches. Please bring your mask to wear and plan to keep your family picking together.
There are so many green berries to ripen in the next few weeks!
Peaches are gone until Tuesday. As the season progresses we should have peaches every day. It’s just the beginning!
Blueberry and Raspberry picking will begin on July 7 from 9-4!
When you are picking it should be very close to the quiet and productive time you’ve spent here in the past.
There will be changes in checking in and out. Masks must be worn in all places at the farm
The 6′ rule applies to the stand and in the berries.
We will be writing about the details of checking in and out.
There will be hand-washing station in 4 locations.
We will be wearing masks and gloves and sanitizing surfaces through out the day.
Early in the morning it is much busier than the afternoon. If you want extra space consider that time to pick.
We will do our best to keep our staff and you all healthy.
It is a great crop of berries and the peaches are beautiful!
Pre-picked blueberries will be available most of the time!
For the time being we won’t request a reservation or take preorders on line.
More details to follow!
Opening for Pick Your Own berries on JULY 7.
There should be enough ripe ones by then to help people spread out in the rows! For now, here are some photos from this afternoon. We’ll be posting more information about how it will work in the next few days.
We are so happy to say Doe Orchards will be open for Blueberry and Raspberry picking as soon as the berries are ready. It should be somewhere near the 4th of July. There will be changes made in the stand and masks will be worn but once you’re picking you should have the same wonderful open air experience as last year and the years before.
There is a great crop of berries, peaches, apples, honey, sunflowers and tomatoes to come.
Looking forward to seeing you!
Macoun, Empire, Granny Smith, Red Delicious, Cortland & McIntosh can be found on the trees, still delicious and firm, sweet or tart, rain or shine! We’ll be open for apples, gourds cider and apple firewood at the stand. For apples, 1/2 or full peck, we have Honeycrisp, Gala, Fuji, Cortland, McIntosh, Empire & Golden Delicious.
