Pick Your Own Peaches?

ekim256 Aug 3, 2010 12:29 PM

Hi everyone,
I've been trying to look for a place where I can pick my own peaches, preferably in the NOTL area. I've only found 1 farm so far, in Beamsville called Cherry Avenue Farms, but I wanted to bike around to some wineries before peach picking. Any help would be appreciated!

      Hey!
      Thanks so much, that's so sweet of you :)
      Neither Peach Country Farm Market nor Life's A Peach let you pick your own, unfortunately (I called them)

      It seems like the only places are:
      1. Cherry Avenue Farms - Freestone picking starts this Friday!
      2. Nokara Farms - only if you buy at least $30 (a bushel)

      Thanks for the link! Here is another useful one for those who like picking their own fruits and veggies: http://ontario.farmvisit.com/pick/

      I think that I'm going to go to Cherry Avenue Farms...it's not NOTL, but I heard Jordan is a nice place to rent bikes and tour as well. I'll do some digging around Chow for some restaurant recs. If anyone has any experience biking around Jordan's wineries, please let me know if it was great!
