The only thing more rewarding than serving your family farm fresh fruits and vegetables is serving fruits and vegetables that you’ve grown yourself. And while that’s a nice thought, many of us have neither the time nor the space to cultivate a garden, much less an orchard. Fortunately, there is a middle ground thanks to the many pick your own fruits and vegetables farms near Richmond.
Many farms, orchards, and berry patches in Richmond and the surrounding countryside offer the opportunity to benefit from their harvest, giving you and your family the opportunity to pick what you want, when you want. From plump, sweet strawberries in the spring to crisp, juicy apples in the late summer and fall, it’s easy to find homegrown produce that you can enjoy picking straight from the vine, bush or tree yourself.
The following list provides a wide selection of berry farms, produce farms, and orchards that that let you pick your own fruits and vegetables (and even some places with herbs and flowers) ensuring that you can always have the freshest farm-to-table experience possible.
And as always, if you have a favorite spot to pick your own fruits or vegetables in or around Richmond that we may have overlooked, we would love to hear about it. Be sure to drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
