U-pick strawberries, sour cherries, and Pumpkins. Many other prepicked fruits, corn, vegetables. Strawberries start in Mid-June and last till around July 4th. We have numerous varieties and a couple acres of Strawberries to be picked. The large Sour Cherry orchard is available for U-pick usually starting Mid-July and ending at the beginning of August. We start selling pumpkins in late September and continue until October. We also have a fall festival in October that you can get a wagon ride out to our patch and pick a pumpkin from the field yourself. See the Fall Festival page for more information. Every year Way Fruit Farm hosts a Fall Festival on the 2nd and 3rd Saturday's of October. The Festival is a great time to come out with family or friends and take a free wagon ride out to the pumpkin patch and pick just the pumpkin you want. There is also numerous other things to do at the festival. There is an apple slingshot, over a dozen crafters, a petting zoo and other activities to enjoy. Food is provided by a local Lions Club and baked goods including apple dumplings are available. The best part of it all is that 10% of all the earning's on both Saturday's will go to an orphanage in the Dominican Republic. (UPDATED: October 11, 2008)
