Here at Rittman Orchards, we pride ourselves in growing the best fruits and vegetables in the area. We're probably best known for our apples, but that's just one of many, many things that we grow here. We also grow our own strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, peaches, nectarines, plums, melons, sweet corn, tomatoes, peppers, and a whole lot more. Below is a list of what we currently have available, as well as what's coming up next.
U-Pick: The second crop red raspberries are starting to tail off a little. Although there are still some really nice ones out there, they're running low. To do u-pick, you can bring your own (non-glass) containers, and we'll weigh them before you go out. The market staff will direct you as to which rows should have the most ripe berries. Have fun!
