Best pick-your-own farms near Boston

I'm looking for a good pick-your-own farm this weekend--blueberries, maybe blackberries, peaches, all that---any favorites out there?

  1. Connors Farm in Danvers is one of my favorite places for picking. They should definitely have blueberries and peaches. Not sure about blackberries.

      Both the raspberry field and the blueberry field are open for picking at Connors.
      Also, Tendercrop Farms in Newbury has pick your own but I'm not sure what's available this week, I suppose the OP could phone them: 978.462.6972

      1. Russell Orchards on Argilla Rd. in Ipswich lists the following:
        BLUEBERRIES OPEN; plentiful
        RASPBERRIES OPEN; fair
        BLACKBERRIES OPEN; plentiful
        Check out the information about mosquitoes... They're in season too...

        Russell Orchards
        143 Argilla Rd, Ipswich, MA 01938

        1. My 5yo son, his friend and I pulled in a nice blueberry harvest at Honey Pot Hill ( in Stow this past Saturday. I think that's the only PYO crop they have going right now.

          (edit: and why doesn't Chowhound let me use HTML links? grumble.)

          1. The Farm in Winchester will have raspberries in a few weeks. 781-721-7128 for picking conditions.

              For a more rustic farm environment I suggest Carlson Orchards in Harvard. No blackberries, but plenty of blueberries, peaches, nectarines, and raspberries (if ripe this week). Was there last Saturday and got a little of everything and very few people to boot.
