Summer is officially here, and what better way to celebrate than with a fun-filled day of picking fresh, delicious raspberries? We headed to Apple Hills in Binghamton for their opening day of raspberry picking on June 22nd, and it was a berry good time!

Easy for Little Hands

One of the things we love about berry season is how accessible they are. With plenty of ripe berries at just the right height for our kids, it is easy for them to get involved and enjoy the picking process. They had a blast searching for the juiciest berries and filling the basket with ruby red treasures.

Picking Tips and Info

For those interested in heading to Apple Hills for some raspberry picking fun, here are some key details:

  • U-Pick Price: $4.40 per pound (with a 3.99% discount for cash!)
  • Hours: Picking hours depend on the weather and crop availability, so be sure to check the Apple Hills Cafe Facebook page for the latest updates.
  • Location: The raspberry picking field is located just past the cafe which is at 131 Brooks Rd in Binghamton, NY. Follow the signs.
  • Parking: Keep in mind that parking is on a grass field, and the path to the field is unpaved and slightly bumpy.

Making Memories, One Berry at a Time

Our trip to Apple Hills for raspberry picking was a fantastic way to spend a summer day. We came home with not only delicious berries but also happy memories of spending time together as a family outdoors. So grab your hats, sunscreen, and a sense of adventure, and head over to Apple Hills for your own berry picking bonanza!
