Is there Raspberry Picking Near Me ?

Nothing says summer like the PYO signs for soft summer fruits of Strawberries and Raspberries, although I can never decide which one is my actual favourite, they are both delicious!

Going along to a PYO Raspberry is great fun for the entire family, although it can be tough on the fingers when you happen to touch the spiky stems!

Raspberry Picking Tips

  • Raspberries should be picked when they are fully ripe, you can tell this as they roll into your fingers without effort leaving them with a much more soft and gentle texture.
  • Check for ripeness to ensure the raspberry is plump, deep in color and still slightly firm.
  • If you gently pull on the raspberry. It should easily come away from the stem, leaving the stem on the plant. If it resists it’s probably not fully ripe and should be left to ripen longer.
  • Always check the berries around the ones you pick. Its highly likely they are the same maturity and are also ready to be picked.
  • The raspberry plants do have small thorns so be careful when grasping the branches.
  • Place in shallow, hard containers and do not stack the berries too deep. It’s better to use multiple smaller containers to avoid the soft fruit getting damaged.
  • Always check on the day you are going that the PYO place is open, as sometimes bad weather causes them to shut without any notice.
  • Earlier the better, not only is it cooler on a summers day first thing, but the PYO farms tend to be less busy when they first open, so enabling you lots more choice of berries.
  • Check each individual farm to see if you are required to bring your own containers to collect the fruit, every place is different.
  • You are wanting to pick the ripest berries, therefore they need to be used almost immediately (which is never a problem in our house!)
  • Be careful where you stand, try to avoiding stepping across the rows of raspberry bushes as it may damage the younger plants.
  • Start at the far end of a row, and don’t be afraid to get right inside the bushes, many of the best raspberries can be found lower down and in the middle of the bushes.
  • Ensure you wear a long sleeved top, those bushes can give you quite a few scratches, especially if you are searching in the middle.

How To Store Raspberries

As stated above, when you pick raspberries, they are already ripe, so there is no requirements to wait for them to ripen, therefore they should be consumed within a few days, there are a few tips to enable them to last a few days:

  • Try to avoid washing them until you want to eat or cook them. If you Rinse them before you store them it accelerates them going bad.
  • Store them in the fridge in a hard container, to ensure they have minimal bruising.
  • Due to them being fully ripe when picked, use them within a few days.
  • You can also freeze them

The Benefits of Pick Your Own Raspberries

I will admit that PYO raspberries can work out slightly more expensive than buying them from a supermarket or ready picked, but the benefits are definitely worth it. You may have to you pay an entry fee at some PYO Farms, but this is usually deducted from whatever produce you buy.

  • The children can see exactly where their food comes from.
  • It reduces food miles, your raspberries don’t need to be transported from another country, when they are a short drive away.
  • They have a much better taste, when picked at the time they are supposed to.
  • It’s helping to support a local business. Farming is hard enough these days, so it’s nice to give something back locally.
  • It gets the entire family out of the house, everyone will enjoy walking (or running) up and down the raspberry patch looking for the biggest, juiciest raspberries.
  • Its about making memories with your children, I still have fond memories of going raspberry picking when I was a child, and it’s important for our children to experience these things too.
