FAQ’s
Learn everything you need to know about Bill's Berry Farm!

 since 1994

Do we need to bring picking baskets?

We encourage you to bring your own containers for picking. We do recommend that you stop in at our Farm Store and have the staff pre-weigh your containers before you fill them up. We offer large heavy cardboard picking trays for $1 for picking.

Do we need to provide containers to take our fruit home?

We look forward to the future growth and expansion of Bill’s Berry Farm over the coming years. Our ideas are big and our list is long. We invite you and your family to grow with us.

ARE WE ALLOWED TO EAT THE FRUIT WHILE WE ARE PICKING IN THE FIELD?

No. Due the ongoing COVID situation we ask that there be absolutely NO TASTING in the field, including toddlers and babies. We ask that if the children are unable to follow these rules that they should be kept from going to the field.

We normally have a saying… A TASTE is ok, GRAZING is STEALING!  We kindly ask that you pay for your fruit before eating/snacking just like you would at any grocery store. If every customer that comes to our farm eats just one little ½ cup of fruit/one peach/one apple, etc. that amounts to more than $10,000 in stolen property each year.  Ouch!

Do we need to provide containers to take our fruit home?

Yes! We do have a heavy plastic fruit bags that you are welcome to, but if you want something with more protection for your fruit you should bring your own containers.

Do you allow pets?

No. Due to national food safety regulations we do not allow any pets. All pets must remain in your vehicle at all times. We prefer you leave your pets home where they will be most comfortable.

Do you allow service animals?

Yes. We do allow any service dog that is properly identified, restrained and trained. Please stop in our Farm Store to let the staff know your dog will be with you. Service dogs are not allowed in any of the fruit fields due to national food safety regulations. They must remain in our park area at all times.

What forms of payment do you take?

We take cash, credit and debit at our Farm Store. All other sales stations at our farm (including food service) are cash only.

What days do you offer donuts?

We offer hot donuts and drinks every Saturday from May to October. We offer a hot BBQ type lunch during our Saturday fruit festivals. You can check our Festivals & Events page for more details and dates. Midweek we have a few snack foods available in the Farm Store.

Do you provide picnic tables, and can we bring our own picnic food?

Yes, we do have many picnic tables and a large grass area for picnicking, and you are welcome to bring your own picnic from home. No food is allowed in our fruit fields due to food safety regulations.

Are professional photographers allowed to use the farm for photo shoots with their clients?

Yes, any time during our posted open hours. There is no charge.

Can we take our family/graduation pictures at your farm?

Yes, any time during our posted open hours. There is no charge.

Do you spray your crops?

If you mean, do we spray bad chemicals on our fruit…then no. But, we do use our sprayers quite heavily to spray on natural/organic fertilizers and nutrients because the leaf surface of the plant is the best way for the plant to absorb these nutrients.
