What's in season in May 2016, and other timely information:

Notes for May 2016: Strawberries have a very brief season; and they start in early April in the South, May in most of the US, and early June in the North - don't miss them: See your state's crop availability calendar for more specific dates of upcoming crops. And see our guide to local fruit and vegetable festivals, such as strawberry festivals and blueberry festivals. Cold weather crops, like spinach, some lettuces, peas, kale, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, leeks and early onions being harvested in all but the coldest regions. Many farms and markets still have fresh winter squash, stored from last Autumn.

    "No longer is the price $3.00 (and optional $2.00 hayride). It is $5.00 each to enter farm with $3.00 credit per person. I said I did not need hayride to bring me to the apples and peaches that i could walk myself, but price is still $5.00. Taking hayride to fruits/ veggies OR NOT it is still $5.00 (with the $3.00 credit). Pretty expensive though, spent close to $100.00 on apples and peaches..."
    Comments from a visitor on September 22, 2010: "In reply to the post from Sept 11th 2010. I agree that at first it was a little unsettling to have to pay up front for the privilege of picking my own stuff. They charge $3.00 per person for admission to the fields and an additional $2.00 per person if you want to take the hayride. The hayride is completely optional, as the orchards/berry fields are easily within walking distance of the main areas and they actually give you back the $3.00 per person as credit towards paying for whatever you picked, you just need to hand over your ticket stubs to the cashier. My $30.00 worth of apples (My 3 yr old son had to pick an apple from every tree, lol) was reduced to only $12.00 after the credit. All in all, my family and I have a great time here and we come back every year for apples and pumpkins. We highly recommend it!"
    Comments from a visitor on September 11, 2010: "We visited Alstede farms today to pick our own fruit, something I've done multiple times per year with my daughters since we moved here 9 years ago. Sadly we were greeted with the new policy of paying $5 per person just to go out to the fields to pick....then you pay for the lbs of fruit on top of that. Can you imagine paying $20 for some raspberries?? That's what it would have cost us if just me and my 8 year old went out to the field and filled a basket! OUCH We didn't pick fruit and we didn't stay. What you used to be a fun simple low cost place to take your children has become a money hungry pit and almost commercial like. I can understand when they want to charge for the kids to play on the blow up rentals they have or ride the ponies but WHY would you charge a customer $5 to go out to the field and pick the berries FOR YOU and then pay for them? I know there are plenty other farms that don't do that and that's a shame. Shame Shame Shame"
    Comments from a visitor on June 27, 2009: "We love this farm!"
    Comments from a visitor, May 30, 2008: "They are open all year and have a fabulous store (if you don't want to get out in the brambles and pick your own) They are kid friendly with hayrides, horse rides, festivals, corn maze. They take credit cards and have restrooms. They make their own homemade ice cream (oh boy is it good!). They have farm markets in local communities throughout central NJ. You can even cut your very own wildflowers to take home in a bouquet! :D They are a great farm in a great little town (which also has a Sally Lunn's Tea Room and many wonderful little antique stores and old fashioned privately owned boutique stores."

The flowers and shrubs looked nice and the market was clean."

    Comments from a visitor on August 02, 2008: "This is the fifth pick-your-own place we've explored in New Jersey, and it was the best! We climbed a short distance up a hill, past chickens and peacocks to donut peach trees laden with fruit. Later, we walked down the hill to blueberry bushes still full (August 2) with berries. We will be checking back regularly to see other peach varieties and apples become open to picking."

    Comments from a visitor on August 28, 2010: "We went to this farm to pick apples with our children. I looked at the website before visiting to get an idea but there was no information on pricing. Before you go you should know the first thing they ask you to do is join as a member $11 for a family of 5. You can't pick fruit unless you are a member. At first this was very disturbing but my husband convinced me to just join because we were already here with the kids. What I realized was that the $11 was to enter the fields to pick apples and peaches and also where they have several areas set up for children to play, ie mazes, slides, corn pit, tunnels and picnic area. The apples and peaches are still priced by the pound but you don't have to wait on long lines and purchase tickets for the kids, everything is included. I ended up spending $35 total and got 18 pounds of fruit and a nice day out with the family. And the membership is a card that allows you to return to pick your own fruit any weekend, so my family will probably go back. One problem that I see for families with little kids in strollers it to get to the peach trees you have to hike up 1/2 a mile up a steep gravel washed out road. I was glad to have my hiking boots on and ended up carrying my 2 year old up and down the steep hill. I saw a lady wearing high heels pushing a stroller trying (but could not) get up the hill and that looked painful. Do not wear flip-flops either... you need boots or sneakers."

But he is reasonable, and very hospitable. If you ask about other farms and such, he'll give you the answers you need. Last year he had tomatoes (the best around I may add!), squash, pumpkins, onions, red potatoes, plums, honey, peppers, hot peppers, home made hot sauce and jams! He uses reused cardboard boxes adn paper bags, never plastic! He grows all things organic and has been there for many years. It is a farm and he picks the goods.
