Picking your own fruit is an age-old idea with a fresh new approach

We do the planting and growing. You do the picking. It is as close as you can come to having your own garden without the space, work and expense. Due to our size, we can offer a diverse variety of many fruits and vegetables.

We present the opportunity to learn how different fruit crops are grown, see these fruits ripen and experience the difference in taste and appearance between varieties of each fruit. For instance, we grow 45 varieties of yellow and white peaches, picking for each variety lasts about a week and peach season lasts from July through September. We grow 30 varieties of both eating and cooking apples. Apple picking starts in early August.

“Pick Your Own” is entertaining and fun. It is an outdoor activity that can be enjoyed by the whole family. The fresh air and sunshine are great for your health, the hayride to the fields and orchards is an adventure, and of course the fruit always tastes better when you’ve just picked it. We also offer helpful suggestions for new ways to prepare and preserve the fruit that you pick.

What better family outing is there than coming to the farm, having a fun-filled experience and ending up with a refrigerator full of great tasting, healthy produce!

What to Know - Fruit Picking Late May thru October


Crop availability changes quickly due to weather, amount of ripe fruit, the number of visitors, how much they pick or the abundance of a particular crop at any given time.  The most up to the minute picking information is posted on this page.

There is a minimum charge of $6 per person to pick.  The prices reflects the box price; there are no smaller quantities available to pick at this time.  Due to COVID we are not weighing the fruits and vegetables to try to minimize contact.  An example of how it works:  If you are coming to pick Apples the price is $36 for a peck box.  We will allow up to 6 people on that one particular box.  That will cover the $6 per person minimum charge to pick.  When you check in with our Pick-Your-Own Cashier you will let them know what crop you are interested in picking and they will get you started.

Have a wonderful time!

Timed Tickets

**New for 2020** Timed Tickets Required**

To keep everyone safe, we are limiting our hayrides to half-capacity.  Reserve a complimentary timed ticket for each member in your family to look for the perfect tree!  Each person over 11 months old should be counted for a ticket. If you already reserved your tickets and are no longer able to come, please call (610) 876-7116 so we can release your tickets for another family.

Reservations / Time Tickets FAQ:

  • Why can I only put one or two tickets in my cart?
    • The number of seats each customer is permitted to add to their cart at one time is 25. If there is only an option for one or two tickets that means that time is almost full. If you require more tickets than are left just jump to a different time slot.
  • What if I am running late?
    • Tickets are our way to pulse people throughout the day to keep everyone safe. If you are running a few minutes behind no need to worry! If you have reserved the last time slot of the day you may need to consider coming another day if you cannot arrive on time. Please note that the last wagon of the day departs at 4 pm sharp.
  • Can I just reserve tickets once I am there?
    • To keep everyone safe and to help us control crowds we are asking that visitors reserve a timed ticket from home before you visit.
  • Can we bring our dog?
    • No, we're sorry but pets are not permitted on the farm.

    • Additional containers may be purchased when checking in.
  • OUR  P-Y-O SHED IS Currently closed.
    • Please check-in at the shed located on Linvill Road to get started.
  • An employee will check you in, sell and provide the container(s) and direct you where to go to pick.
  • Hand sanitizers & a wash station will be available.


  1. Customers must follow all COVID protocols, MASKS REQUIRED; including children.
  2. Social distancing will be enforced and violators will be asked to leave.
  3. Follow all signs and instructions by staff.

Picking Tips Late May thru October

  • Dress comfortably and seasonally appropriate. Sneakers are recommended.
  • Be sure to pack a hat and wear sunscreen if you're picking on a hot summer day.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Before you start picking with your children, explain to them how to identify ripe fruit. If you need any help we have knowledgeable staff on hand! You can ask at the PYO Shed or any of the hayride drivers.
  • Only pick ripe fruit that you want to take home with you. 
  • Once fruit is picked it cannot continue to grow, ripen or be selected by anyone else.
  • After a rainy night our fields may be wet, but we do plant grass or put straw down between all our rows of fruit. We work hard to keep these grass areas mowed to make your picking experience enjoyable.
  • Customers are required to use our picking boxes.

Our Crops


Linvilla has 25 varieties of apples on 20 acres of orchards. There is nothing like picking and eating a fresh apple right off the tree.


Not always available in great numbers due to their sensitivity to frost. When they are available they are a unique treat infrequently offered at other farms or markets.


Like apricots, they have a very short season and are sensitive to our Northeast weather conditions! Picking often lasts only one to three days each season.


White and yellow nectarines offer the same juiciness and great flavor as our peaches without the fuzz.


We grow 45 varieties of peaches. The varieties are both yellow and white, freestone and cling. The new early peaches are adding excitement to our early picking season; don't miss our Desiree or Rich May peaches! All of the varieties we grow are sweeter and juicier than anything you'll find in the supermarket.

 Donut Peaches

Sometimes called "Saturn Peaches" these are smaller and flatter than regular peaches. They are extremely sweet and their small size makes them great for kids!


Asian, Bartlett, Bosc, Seckel and Vermont Beauties are the five pear varieties offered at Linvilla. Commercial production is limited here in the Northeast so if you like to support local agriculture, get your pears at Linvilla!


Our plums are sweeter and smaller than California varieties sold in the supermarket.


Our thornless blackberries are very large and are one of our easiest berries to pick. They make great jam!


We grow seven varieties of blueberries. Recent studies champion the health benefits of nutritious blueberries! Many visitors enjoy picking raspberries and blueberries as their seasons coincide for 2 weeks. Have you ever made a raspberry or blueberry pie?


Our 6 varieties of raspberries ripen during both an early summer and fall season. Early summer season is late June through mid- July. Raspberries are a little more work to pick than other berries but they're worth the effort!


Our Pick-Your-Own season begins with strawberries in late May. Strawberries are the first PYO crop Linvilla ever offered and they're Farmer Norm's favorite crop! Strawberry picking is one of our best photo opps.  Our Summer and Fall Variety is Seascape and can be picked from late-June through mid-October. Linvilla is on the cutting edge of ever bearing strawberry production which is new and evolving.


We raise a wide variety of eggplants in an interesting range of shapes and colors. Experiment with a new and different variety on your dinner table!

 Sweet Peppers

We grow traditional green bell peppers along with yellow and orange bells. Linvilla highly recommends the new Canario pepper, an excellent yellow Marconi, a must try!

 Hot Peppers

Linvilla grows a wide variety of hot peppers in varying colors and intensities: Jalapeno, Habanero, Serrano, Cherry Bomb, Cayenne and more!

 Sweet Corn

Linvilla Orchards prides ourselves on picking and selling fresh sweet corn every day in season.


Tomatoes are such an exciting vegetable that it's actually a fruit! Hand pick a truly vine-ripe tomato today and experience how tasty a tomato can be. We offer beefsteak, plum, cherry, grape and heirloom varieties.


Fresh rhubarb is crisp and tart. Cook some down in a sauce pan with sugar to discover a dish from the past.


Linvilla grows three varieties of seeded cooking and eating grapes: Early Concord (Fredonia), Concord and Niagara. Make some jam or squeeze them for juice!


Excellent Picking Conditions 

  • The fruit is abundant and easily found
  • It does not require much time to pick and fill a picking container
  • One does not have to go far or cover much distance or area in the field to fill a picking container
  • There is more excellent quality fruit
  • It is the height of the season or one of the peaks of the season

Good Picking Conditions  

  • The fruit is abundant but not as plentiful or as easily found as when conditions are excellent
  • It takes a little longer to pick the same amount of fruit as compared to excellent conditions
  • You may have to cover more area to fill your container as compared to excellent conditions
  • The quality of the fruit is still very good
  • The season may be on the way up or down or we may be in between the peak of a variety of a crop

Fair Picking Conditions 

  • There is not a lot of fruit and the crop might be considered “light”
  • It takes longer to pick and fill your container
  • You will have to work harder and cover bigger area to fill your container
  • The quality can be excellent and there will be pockets of great fruit but it will take more effort
  • The picking can be “fair” when the season is just beginning or when it is ending
  • Often the fruit can be sweeter and the best tasting of the season, but not as pretty, this is especially true towards the end of a crop’s season
