GTA Pick-Your-Own Raspberries etc., Wittamore's etc.

  • 3

Today I went to a Wittamores to pick Raspberries and anything else seasonal. I have been less and less into Wittamores over the past decade but today was the last straw. They are now charging a $4 fee (which is deducible from your purchase) per head for admittance.

I asked about the quality of the Raspberries and was told they were great. I got into the small patch and found that it was not just picked over, but most of the berries were unripe. There was another section further away laden with berries, but a woman named Violetta yelled at us to not pick in the only section that had ripe berries. Then when we left less than 15 minutes later, they were very rude and did not want to give us our money back. I eventually got the money back. I but I will never go to Wittamores again.

Does anyone have any other PYO places that you can recommend? Farms located in East end are preferable. I am very interested in finding an organic PYO.
