“Greg’s U-Pick embodies the “C“ in CSA. They are all about building a community, embracing the community, and involving their community. My family has gone to Greg’s to pick berries for many years, but becoming a CSA member was a game changer. I am a mom of 5, ages ranging from 5 to 22. My husband and I remember driving 4 of our hesitant kids to the farm for Greg’s first event of the year where we had an opportunity to plant sunflowers and meet the farmers. By the time we left, the kids were begging us to come back each week! Surprisingly, it was not just the animals, country store, big red barn full of produce or beautiful grounds that drew us in… it was the people! Every farmer and worker at Greg’s is so kind and welcoming! They encouraged us to learn the names of the animals and feed them, plant sunflowers with them, understand the importance of knowing where our food comes from and celebrate in a bountiful harvest with various events all year long. They welcomed us in and encouraged us to become a part of this beautiful community with them. We knew from that very first day that we stumbled upon something truly special.”
As a mom, I couldn’t be more grateful for something that my entire family can enjoy doing together. Even our eldest, who now has a family of her own, meets us each week at the farm. I can honestly say that some of our most cherished family memories will be of our special weekly trips to Greg’s. Thank you for all that you do to embrace your families and create a community among us.”

“The friendly staff was eager to accommodate our group’s needs and ensure that our group’s event went off without a hitch. They were a pleasure to work with, and the variety of activities available made our outing a festive occasion. Would highly recommend Greg’s U-Pick as a great venue!”

“I learned about Greg’s 22 years ago when I was at their market on Transit Road during strawberry season. Greg invited us to his farm to pick berries and I was so surprised he wanted a family with a toddler traipsing through the strawberry patch. Greg said that is exactly who he wanted in his strawberry patch so off we went. We have picked so many berries there every year since and our toddlers and children have come home with sticky fingers, sunburnt noses and smiles. They have made and enjoyed preserves and pies and breads made with their bounty. So when Greg’s started their CSA, our family was one of the first to join and we have never looked back. All the fruits and vegetables are amazing. You can taste the sunshine in the weekly share! Produce we weren’t familiar with before have become family favorites and new recipes and storage ideas are shared over the bins and on the CSA FB page with other families. Greg’s CSA has become a place of community – picking beans and tomatoes and berries, herbs and flowers, eating corn and ice cream and donuts, enjoying a bonfire with CSA friends. Now my toddlers are grown and they come home from work or college and can’t wait to get to Greg’s. CSA day is everybody’s favorite day!!!”

“We are so very thankful to the entire staff at Greg’s U-Pick for providing our preschool with a wonderful field trip once again! Over the past several years. we’ve attended them elsewhere prior to trying them, and honestly we’ll keep coming as long as they’re offering them! The field trips are always packed with activities leaving our kids and families engaged the entire time. What I love about this place is that they truly educate our little ones, but in such a hands-on way that our kids love it and stay interested. From stories, to planting crops, to selecting pumpkins right off the vine, each trip is unique from the year before making it our favorite field trip spot. In addition to the field trip, they are simply generous and giving, always donating items to our classroom for further learning. They are wonderful at Greg’s U-Pick!”

Greg’s CSA also has fun extras throughout the season like treats from the bakery, feeding the animals, and getting to pick your own beautiful flower arrangements each week. There is nothing more peaceful than being in a giant field of flowers – watching butterflies, bees and hummingbirds – while clipping your bouquet in the sunshine! We also love the larger-scaled seasonal events that happen on the farm, offered free to members. They are so fun and have become a family tradition for us! Our family is so thankful for our Greg’s CSA!”
