Make a Day of It!
At Phillips Farm, one the most exciting times of year is Pick-Your-Own season, when we invite you to experience our farm at its best by picking fruits, berries, vegetables, flowers and pumpkins. Enjoy a relaxing day outdoors in the peaceful countryside surrounded by orchards and farmland on what many customers have called the most beautiful farm they have ever visited. If you believe – as many do – that the best food is what’s grown closest to you, plan to visit Phillips Farms soon.
Phillips Farms has two Pick-Your-Own locations. One is at the Main Farm, located at 91 Crabapple Hill Road, Milford, and the other is at the Farm Market, located at 564 Milford-Warren Glen Road, Milford. There are different crops at each location. It’s fun and easy to visit both locations on the same trip! The farms are only 2 miles apart.
We do not charge an entrance fee to enter our farm for picking, but we do have a $5 picking minimum per person. All fruits and vegetables are sold by the pound.
The best way to get the most complete Pick-Your-Own information is to sign up for our weekly emails. Find out exactly what is available for picking and at which farm location. We include prices in the weekly emails. We also have a recorded message line at (908) 995-0022 that is updated daily with important information, including what is available for picking and at which farm location.
Find out what’s available for picking by checking our Crop Calendar and our Apple Ripening Calendar.
