Pick-your-own is now OPEN for the season

Pick-Your-Own will be much different this year due to COVID-19.  It is the goal of Phillips Farms to create a balance between making a safer environment for you and everyone at the farm, while at the same time providing you and your family with an enjoyable outdoor experience.  Beginning Saturday 6/20/2020, Pick-Your-Own at the Main Farm is open.  The Main Farm is located at 91 Crabapple Hill Rd, Milford.  Please call our recorded message line at 908-995-0022 to find out what fruit is currently available for picking at the Main Farm.  As a reminder, PYO is closed every Tuesday.  Please remember that picking availability is always subject to change on a daily and/or hourly basis, so it is highly recommended to call our recorded message line at 908-995-0022 first before coming out. 
  • Pick-Your-Own is open everyday except Tuesdays. PYO IS CLOSED EVERY TUESDAY.  It is highly recommended to call our Message Line 908-995-0022 first before coming out.  If the fields get picked out of berries there is the possibility the fields may close early that day.  Call our recorded Messagae Line at 908-995-0022 for the most up-to-date picking information.

PICK-YOUR-OWN GUIDLINES:

  • Call our Pick-Your-Own information line at 908-995-0022 for the most up-to-date picking availability and information before coming out to the farm.
  • We are a working farm.  Please drive slowly and carefully, and be respectful of the machinery and the people working.  Observe all rules and read our signs for the benefit of all our customers and employees.
  • For everyone's safety and enjoyment, children must be accompanied by an adult at all times, and must be under proper supervision and control.
  • If you drop any fruit on the ground while picking, we ask that you please make every effort to pick it up and purchase it so that no fruit is wasted.  Many labor-intensive hours go into the care of our crops.
  • Pick only the amount of fruit that you are prepared to pay for.  We can't put it back on the plant.
  • Leave your pets at home.  Our farm is required to adhere to health regulations and food safety protocol.
  • Wear appropriate clothing for the weather, and don't forget hats and sunscreen.
  • We recommend wearing closed-toed shoes for your safety.  There are a lot of wasps, sticks and uneven ground.
  • Pick only in designated areas.  Our picking areas are carefully selected on a daily basis with consideration to the ripening schedule of our fruit.
  • Do not climb or shake the trees.  This will damage fruit and can break tree limbs.
  • Please dispose of trash in proper receptacles.
  • Please be considerate of all our customers and observe our non-smoking policy.

Please remember: Pick-Your-Own is closed on Tuesdays.

After you've finished picking your fruit, return to the farm stand or Pick-Your-Own shed where our helpful staff will weigh your fruit. Don't forget to check out the many other farm-grown and seasonal fruits, vegetables and plants available for purchase before you leave.
