Posted on June 11th, 2015

June 11th, 2015 - GUILFORD, CT, – Pick-Your-Own Season at Bishop’s Orchards Farm Market & Winery, located on the Shoreline in Guilford, CT, has officially begun! Opening their season is their PYO Strawberries. This year there will be three different picking locations, only one field open each day. All fields are located off of Long Hill Road in Guilford. It is advised to follow the signs from the Farm Market for more accurate directions. Their 24-hour phone information line, 203-458-PICK, is updated daily with picking locations, times, and prices. Admission into the fields is FREE, but you must pay for what you pick, by the pound. Wagon rides are provided at fields with longer walking distance.
Bishop’s OWN strawberries are also available in their Farm Market located at 1355 Boston Post Road in Guilford. Currently strawberry season is at its peak, so hurry over before the season is over! Bishop’s expects PYO strawberries to be OPEN for a few weeks until early July, probably before the 4th.
“We are excited for this picking season.  Even with the winter we just had, all of the crops are coming in strong and it looks to be an all around great year for the farm,” says Sarah Bishop DellaVentura, 6th Generation Owner and Pick Your Own Manager. “The strawberry crop is now abundant and the berries are ripening rapidly with the heat.  If this is any indication for the rest of the season, we will all be happy farmers!”
