At Carrigan Farms, we have some crops that we pick for you and some that you can pick yourself. In the spring, asparagus and strawberries are plentiful, along with lots of heirloom leaf lettuce. In the summer, look for fresh garden veggies. Apples begin September 11th, 2016 and last a few weeks and then once October starts its PUMPKIN TIME!
This past April we had a late frost that killed a number of our apple blossoms and consequently we have a smaller crop. Some apples also have what is called a “frost ring” that impacts their cosmetic appearance but doesn’t impact their taste, flavor or crunch. Googling “frost ring apple” and selecting images will show you what the frost ring looks like. Again, these apples taste just the same, they just have a cosmetic blemish complements of Mother Nature.
This year we will begin apple picking on September 11th. Cost is $10 per person and includes a half peck bag of apples for each person. On weekends, beginning the 11th, there are hayride shuttles to the orchard that leave on the hour at 11 am, 12 noon, 1 pm, 2 pm and 3 pm. We anticipate apple season to conclude September 25th. Please note that we accept cash or a paper check for payment; however we do not accept credit or debit cards.
At Carrigan Farms we GROW tens of thousands of pumpkins every year. Each and every hayride includes a trip to the pumpkin patch, where kids of all ages (adults too!) each pick their very own pumpkin. Pumpkins range in size from 2-20 pounds +/-, so everyone can find their size.
Hayrides to the pumpkin patch are offered every Saturday and Sunday in October from 9:00 AM until 4:00 PM with wagons departing every 15 minutes. Cost is $10.00 per person and includes a pumpkin, a visit to the petting zoo, and fresh apple cider. No reservation is needed for weekend hayrides between 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM.
Weekday hayrides depart every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday during the month of October at 2:00 PM, 3:00 PM and 4:00 PM sharp. No reservation is needed for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoon hayrides at the times listed above.
Cash or check only please. We do not accept credit or debit cards.
Strawberry patch opens Saturday April 23, 2016.
Monday-Saturday 8:30 AM – 7:30 PM
Sunday 11:00 AM – 6:00 PM
We anticipate the season to last through late May; however, it is weather dependent. Cost is $12 per gallon basket of pick-your-own strawberries and $15 per gallon basket of pre-picked strawberries. There is no charge to enter the fields; however, each pair of customers are asked to pick a minimum of one gallon of strawberries.
Fresh asparagus is available for sale now in our farm market.
