Update from the field - August 13th
Summer crops are coming in strong now. For all of those who enjoy filling their pantry with homemade goodness, please consider heading out to enjoy U-Picking tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, jalapeños, and green beans. While you're here, jump into our strawberry patch, since the berries are enjoying a nice flush right now. Check out our U-Pick availability below to see what is on right now. Remember, these are EVERBEARING strawberry and will continue to produce in large amounts right through September. Additionally, for our local juicers and vegans, there are plenty of kale, collards and chard to enjoy U-Picking. Thanks and we hope to see Wednesday!
What to Expect
Ambrosia Farm is Veneta's premier location for Certified Naturally Grown U-Pick strawberries and blueberries. From Memorial Day through Labor Day, Ambrosia Farm is open for U-Pick. Strawberries produce Mid-May and blueberries around the 4th of July. Additionally, there is an abundance of garden fresh produce open for U-Pick when crops are peaking during harvest time. Check in regularly for availability as the website is updated on a regular basis.
Parking is available at the front of the property next to the barn. Spillover parking is further down the driveway on the large grassy area to the left. The covered farmstand will have a variety of organically grown fruits and vegetables. Farmers are incredibly busy people and there may not be anyone at the farmstand when you arrive. Simply ring the bell (don't be shy, give it a good ring) and one of the farmers on duty will come to your assistance. We encourage shoppers to bring their own reusable bags or containers.
U-Pick and Farmstand Hours of Operation
Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10am-4pm through Labor Day weekend.
