Beginning Oct. 1, visitors can pick raspberries and leave half at Gardenworks and take home the other half for free. The berry field will be open for the pick and share program until the temperature drops to 27 degrees Fahrenheit. Hours for raspberry picking are Monday - Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
"This is our annual fall harvest program. Raspberry loves help pick berries and take home berries for their own use with no money exchanged," says Meg Southerland of Gardenworks. "This is an ideal opportunity to participate in the local harvest and enjoy quality berries for jams, sauces, and freezing. " Gardenworks is a family-owned flower and specialty crop farm that has been part of the Washington County landscape for nearly a century.
