Pick-Your-Own Close to Jamestown

by Elaine Infantolino 14. July 2011 06:08

It’s berry picking time! This fun activity can be found at few different nearby farms.

The raspberries and blueberries are ripe now at Sweet Berry Farm in Middletown. Pick-your-own basket, then enjoy the farm café and specialty food market, which supports local businesses and food artisans. Here you can find fruit & veggies, baked goods, pre-made dinners, spices, flowers and a whole lot more. You might also check out their summer concert and dinner series. Open every day 8am-7pm.  *Tip – save some room for a soft serve cone after a hard day of picking berries.

Pick-your-own blueberries are available at Schartner Farms in Exeter. They claim to have “some the size of quarters”! Picking hours are weekdays 7:30am-noon and 4-7pm. Weekends they are open all day (7am-7pm). They also offer a full produce department, jams, gift shop, nursery and greenhouse. Schartner Farms currently provides fresh produce and products to over fifty Rhode Island Restaurants on a weekly basis.  *Tip – take some delicious corn home for dinner!

Blueberries are also available at Smith’s Berry Farm in North Kingstown. Due to a slow ripening this year, give a quick call (401.295.7669) to be sure it is a good time to go.

If you know of any other great places like these to visit, we would love to hear from you!
