The peach U-Pick will re-open when Encore peaches start to ripen.   We expect them to begin in a week or more. Consider checking back at that time.

Directions to Peach picking when announced:  after arriving on the farm, drive slowly and carefully down the gravel drive.  Turn Right, drive past the pond on the left and up the hill to parking.

The peach crop is not as large as usual due to a late Spring frost. You may have noticed not receiving many emails so far this season, closing earlier than announced, not always having pre-picked peaches and maybe not having your favorite variety.  We continually try to make picking a good experience, but want you to know that we are doing what we can given the circumstances.  We appreciate your business.

On picking days, farm gates open no sooner than 7:30 to allow cars to get off of Highway F. Please do not arrive before that time.  

We provide picking containers so that you don't need to bring any, but if you have a peck, 1/2 peck box or white tomato lid(for blackberries) from our farm, pick into it again and save a little money.  We don't buy back used containers, though.

Information for new visitors

 Wind Ridge Farm is a small orchard and sometimes gets picked out of ripe fruit.  When that happens, it closes to allow fruit to ripen. That is why we announce one, maybe two days of picking at a time.  You know that when we open next, there will be fruit to pick.  Hours open on announced picking days are 8 a.m.-noon.  Sometimes we open evenings later in the season.  We send email newsletters to announce the first picking days and sometimes more for peach varieties, but if you don't want to miss any, consider checking this page as often as you like.  As soon as we know when the next picking is, the post is updated.

Please leave pets at home.
