Brown’s Orchards & Farm Markets
Spend a beautiful spring day with your family picking the most delicious fruit you’ve ever tasted at Brown’s Orchards & Farm Markets in York County. The pick-your-own season starts with strawberries in May, while summer brings blueberries and peaches before the apples of fall arrive. After leaving the orchards behind, you’ll find plenty of other fresh produce inside the market. You can even enjoy a tasty lunch or coffee at the Brown Bean Café.
Way Fruit Farm
Way Fruit Farm has been owned by six generations of the Way family in Port Matilda. Founded when the owners received 1,000 apple trees as a wedding present in 1872, the farm now produces and sells apples, peaches, plums, pears, sweet corn, pumpkins, strawberries, cherries, blueberries, and apricots. Grab a bag and head to the farm store to pick some of the freshest produce around!
