This is a very friendly and big place to pick fruit. They have good seasonal fruit. I personally like the strawberries and my fiancee loves the blueberries. Prices are moderate and the staff is nice. Good place to spend some time with family and friends. Don't be out too long in the heat though.

We have visited Butler's Orchard many times to do outdoor activities as a family. The last time we went there to pick strawberries we had a blast! This activity is much more fun and organized because of the frequent tractor rides that get you to the picking fields. Our parents (seniors) enjoyed picking berries very much.

Lots of picking, lots of variety. Do not want to pick? - visit their store and you can buy their produce and others that they ship in. They have canned jams/preserves/pickles etc. We picked Blueberries and took the tram to the fields. The picking was "Average" yet we were able to pick 10lbs of Blueberries in 45 min - even... More

Every spring, I keep an eye on the Butler's website to see when the earliest berries are going to be available--and the website does a good job of setting general expectations, and then providing real time updates. I have picked their strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, black raspberries, raspberries, and once even some flowers. All of the berries are delicious varieties, and... More

This was my first visit of the season after 40 years of visiting Butler's Orchard. I was interested to see how their new fee policies would affect the experience. I opted to buy a season pass since I live nearby and can come often. I like that I will get a 10% discount on what I pick. I got there... More
