Summer Harvest Time in July at Cloverfield Organic Farm

We are often asked "What is the best time to come to u-pick at the farm?" July might just be the best answer to that question. We are now into our summer harvest season and we have small amounts of many different things (all certified organic!) that you can u-pick into a farm basket in July. A large farm basket filled with about 6-7 different things that you u-pick fresh from the garden is $36. A single pint basket (or bunch) of fruits, flowers, vegetables, or herbs is $6. Our certified organic potted nursery plants range in price from $6 to $20 each. We have dried herbs, garlic, bundles of heirloom wheat, seeds, raw honey, and organic olive oil in the shed and the items in the shed are individually packaged and priced (from $3 to $27).

Stone fruits are available this time of year - wild cherry plums, pluots, plums, and apriums are in season. Other things to fresh u-pick include edible flowers, elderflowers, Himalayan wild blackberries, California bay leaves, grape leaves, Kaffir lime leaves, onions, Absinthe wormwood, ashwagandha leaves, zucchini, chocolate mint, apple mint, strawberry mint, radishes, Greek oregano, nettles, catnip, sorrel, lettuce, escarole, marshmallow leaves, Swiss chard, amaranth leaves, horseradish leaves or roots, yellow ginger, thyme, purslane, nopales, garlic chives, green onions, rhubarb, kales, collards, kohlrabi, green beans, borage, sunflowers, fennel, epazote, sage, rosemary, rau ram, lemon balm, lemon verbena, beets, and parsley. It's possible there might even be our first ripe summer apples (Anna, Ghost, & Dorsett Golden).

Cucumbers and tomatoes should be flowering and available for u-picking later in the month and into the fall.

Our regular u-pick hours are Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from noon to five. We will be open on Thursday, July 4, for Independence Day. You don’t need a reservation to come u-pick during our regular u-pick hours. We have alternate times for reserved tours and events on our website, which you can reserve at least four days in advance. Another reserved service that we offer are private horse interactions with Magic Ben, hosted by Karen Rose Mathews.

We have free parking. Cash, Venmo, credit/debit cards, Paypal, and EBT are all accepted.

We hope that you will have an enjoyable time visiting our organic farm, filling your farm basket, and learning more about real organic farming!
