Located in the beautiful Niagara Peninsula, our farm has been owned and operated by the Moyer Family since 1799 -218 years! Thank you for your interest in our 'pick your own' operation and welcome to our website. Here you will find all the necessary information to plan your next visit to our farm. This includes directions to the farm, a picking schedule, which includes variety and approximate ripening time, pricing and FAQ's. The quality and quantity of our fruit is largely effected by weather conditions, so please check back often to ensure you have the most up-to-date information. Or you can contact us at the homefarm in Vineland. We would be happy to assist you in any way possible:

It's spring time again on the farm, and blossom season has just finished. It is still too early to tell how much fruit we will have this year, but it looks like we have at least a bit of everything! For those of you who missed the apricots last year, this will be great news!!
Most of the phone calls we are receiving at this time are about cherry picking. Cherries are our first crop of the year, and we will open for picking as soon as they are ripe. We do not know our exact start date, as that will depend on the weather between now and the end of June. At this time, we expect to open for picking on Tuesday, July 4. We were hoping to be open the long weekend, but we will not have enough ripe cherries to pick, so we will open just after. We expect to be picking cherries this year for 2-3 weeks!
Peaches, apricots and yellowplums come after cherries, and typically they begin around the third week of July.
All of our fruit is sold by the pound. Cherries have been $2.25/pound for the last three years, and we expect the price to remain the same for this year.
We do not have an admission fee, but we do have a minimum purchase. We do not want visitors to go into the orchard and just eat, so we require a minimum purchase of $5/adult and $3/child. This is paid on the way into the orchard, and is deducted from your final total. Please note that you must pick enough to cover the minimum, as there are no refunds!
Hours:(once we open for picking)
Please note that during cherry season (on the weekends) we are limited in parking spots for buses. Parking spots must be booked in advance; to do so, please call the farm (905-562-5481) and speak to Jennifer.
**PLEASE NOTE: we are now FULL for bus parking the mornings of July 8 and July 15. We still have a few spots available after 3:30pm on those days. If your bus is NOT already confirmed for those two mornings, we will not have a spot for you to park and your bus will unfortunately be turned away.
We look forward to seeing you on the farm sometime this season!
