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.
and Vegetables Currently Available in the Market
U-Pick: We still have the blueberries and red raspberries open for u-pick, but they're getting kind of sparse. There are still really nice berries out there, but if you're picking a large quantity, it'll probably take you awhile; we are past peak season. 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!
Red Raspberries - Already picked and u-pick available.
Blueberries - Already picked and in the market. U-pick is also available today, but we will be closing it soon.
