Farmer giving box of veg to customer on a sunny day

We are super excited to celebrate National Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Month! June is the perfect time to acknowledge these staple products because the growing season is in full swing. Fruits and vegetables are ripening up and in-season. This month we wanted to remind you how important fruits and vegetables are.

  • Fruits and vegetables are full of nutrients like calcium, iron, fiber, Vitamin C, and more, which keep your body strong and healthy!
  • They’re low in calories, and because they contain fiber, they actually fill you up.
  • Fruits and vegetables are also delicious regardless of how they are prepared. Fresh, frozen, grilled, steamed, or juiced, there is a tasty way to get the nutrients you need no matter how much time you have.
  • They contain Phytochemicals that protect you from diseases like type 2 diabetes, stroke, heart disease, high blood pressure, and cancer.
  • Some studies suggest that eating fruits and vegetables benefits the environment as well!

Here at Orr’s, we have a variety of local vegetables and fresh fruits, and we can’t wait to see you! Step outside for some much needed fresh air and reserve your time slot for a socially distanced pick-your-own experience! Now you can enjoy the experience of picking your own crops without the crowds. We’re open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 5pm and on Sundays from 10am to 4pm. Happiness grows here— and so do fruits and vegetables!

We didn’t feel right without the pick-your-own experience. We love to see your smiling faces as you fill up your bowls and baskets with our fresh berries. Picking your own fruits and vegetables allows you to form a deeper connection with the earth than grocery shopping. It also sets a wonderful, peaceful environment to talk with your friends and family. Now more than ever, farmers need help and it feels good to know where your food comes from.

We’re so happy that we were able to reintroduce pick-your-own to your summer plans! Here are some steps to safely picking your own produce.

  • Wear a mask!
  • Wash your hands. Handwashing stations will be provided for our customers. Washing your hands helps reduce the risk of spreading germs.
  • Stay in your designated area. Picking Assistants will provide each customer with a patch row to pick in once they arrive. Even if you think you see the perfect berry, it’s important to stay in your patch! This will help reduce the risk of exposure and create a more comfortable environment for our customers.
  • Have fun! Enjoy this opportunity to get outside, breathe in the fresh air, and connect with the earth.

We love helping you fill your kitchens with fresh produce. Click here to schedule your pick your own experience. We’re open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 5pm and Sundays from 10am to 4pm. We can’t wait to see you. Happiness grows here!
