PYO Raspberries as close to Boston as possible
I'd like to pick a largeish quantity (several quarts) of Raspberries for jam, but don't have a car. I could zipcar, but would prefer to do it by bike, partly for the fun of it.
I have biked out to Nashoba for apples before, so I can bike as far as 495, or could ride the commuter rail out partway and bike to the farm if it's too far.
Any suggestions for a place that meets these criteria?
Around here there are two seasons for raspberries and we are just heading into the fall picking season. I've posted this before but this is a comprehensive listing for Pick Your Own Farms:
Also, a few years ago I went to this one in Concord- organic and more pricey: http://www.farmfresh.org/food/farm.ph...
In Winchester there is: http://www.farmfresh.org/food/farm.ph...
Wright Locke Farm is on the Arlington/Winchester line http://www.wlfarm.org/ Couple of ways to get there from the Alewife-Lexington bike trail, but all accesses are up a steep hill (I have used it fixed-gear training). You can go directly to the raspberry information below.
