Pick-your-own season is upon us, so head to farms and orchards across the Main Line region for the sweetest summer fruits.

The arrival of summer around the Main Line marks the start of beach season, heatwaves and days spent outdoors. For farms and orchards across the Northeast, the warm weather also signals the start of pick-your-own season. Whether you’re in the mood for peaches for cobbler or berries for homemade pie, head to these farms throughout the region to pick your own produce.

This quaint family-run property doesn’t have a website, so if you want updates on what’s ready for harvest, be sure not to forgo the Facebook page updated by Lew Barnard himself. As per the latest update, Barnard’s currently features blackberries and blueberries for public picking, but freshly picked peaches and vegetables are available at the farm store.

Highland Orchards

Over 80 years old, this family-owned farm has been growing peaches and strawberries since its inception. The property grows 16 different crops across the 200 acres, but right now is prime yellow peach season at Highland Orchards. However, sweet corn, pears, apples and plums are coming soon.

Purchased all the way back in 1932, Weaver’s Orchard first sold its produce on the streets of Reading. Today, it’s known for its farmer’s market and its own apple variety: the star-gala. Blueberries, blackberries, peaches and nectarines are all ready for harvest now, with the first apples of summer coming in about three weeks.

Maple Acres Farm and Market

2656 Narcissa Rd., Plymouth Meeting


Over a century old, Maple Acres Farm and Market is a relic from a more simple time. Though pick-your-own options are more limited at Maple Acres, and more focused on flower picking, the farm also sells honey, meats, dairy and preserves. Known for its zinnia flowers, the farm also offers pick-your-own snapdragons, sunflowers, cockscomb, marigolds, cosmos and more. Blueberries are available for picking right now, while tomatoes depend on availability.
