Member U-Pick

One of the most popular benefits of Oxbow membership is the opportunity to U-Pick on specially-scheduled Member U-Pick Days. U-Pick is NOT open to the general public – you must be an Oxbow member or CSA shareholder to take advantage of our exclusive U-Pick areas. Membership is a fun and meaningful way to connect to the land, get to know your farm, and soak up the beauty of Oxbow.

We offer U-Pick opportunities for our members and CSA shareholders throughout the growing season, typically late June through October. U-Pick fruit and veggies are available at variable pricing per pound, and flowers and herbs are always FREE! Read on to learn more about the crops offered and other details.
