Bring on the Berries!

Wine, waterfalls, and crystal-blue lakes are certainly enough to keep you busy in the Finger Lakes this summer, but if you are looking for some fresh goodness to top off your granola, can into jam, or freeze for a taste of summer in the cold-season, get out your buckets—it’s berry-picking season!

That’s right, the joy of summertime is upon us, and local U-pick farms are open for business.  Strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries are ripe and ready!  Cherry-picking also starts this week where available.  Find a berry farm near you that is open for picking, and be sure to check u-pick hours and rules for each location.

There is nothing like the taste of fresh-picked berries to sweeten your baked-goods and celebrate summer in the Finger Lakes!
