About Us

Bio
Owners: Chris & Michelle Grant

Christopher is a 3rd generation farmer. As a teen he went to work on another local dairy farm. That experience and his fondness for picking strawberries led him to decide, rather than raise cows, he wanted his own farm where he would grow vegetables and fruit and offer Pick Your Own options.

Signature Crops

Chris started Grant’s Berry Patch in 1997 with just 1 acre of Strawberries, then over the years added Blueberries, raspberries, and pumpkins for PYO. There is also a large variety of Summer and Fall vegetables including but not limited to, two of his most sought after crops, Sweet Corn and tomatoes.

Over 12 Acres of Produce

The farm now boasts three greenhouses which allow for crops to be available in early June, and over 12 acres of produce that are sold at the Farm’s Stand, local Farmer’s Markets, as part of an onsite Farm Share Program (CSA), and some excess that makes it possible to donate each season to a local Food Bank.

Farm Rules

Grants Berry Patch

It is our desire that everyone who visits the farm has the best possible experience. Therefore we have painstakingly established a set of rules, that in our opinion, benefit the most and inconvenience the least amount of customers.

Treat the property with respect. While parts of our farm are open to the public this is also our home and therefore PRIVATE PROPERTY which means portions of the property including the gardens, greenhouses, yard and home itself, are not open to the public.

Drive slowly! Again as this is our home we have to let our dog, a precocious Pug named Bert, out of the house during the day. Unfortunately Bert’s love for people renders him oblivious to the dangers of cars and he WILL run right up to, in front of, and under cars . So PLEASE DRIVE SLOWLY AND WATCH OUT FOR BERT!

NO Sampling. We appreciate that in the past, sampling has been a part of the overall PYO experience, however, it has never been a particularly hygienic practice. In order to provide our customers with the best possible experience and safest environment we ask that you not sample while picking. Moreover, we encourage the cleaning of all Produce, prior to eating.

Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult. The welfare of your child is your responsibility while on the farm. We recommend a, one Adult per child ratio, if at all possible and the child MUST be by the adults side at ALL times. Children can get excited and run up and down the rows of the fields. This is not only potentially dangerous, as the child could trip and fall, but they often trample the fruit and plants, run into areas designated to other customers and can interfere with an another customer’s experience.

Cash or Check only. While we appreciate the convenience of Credit/Debit cards, there are many expenses that are associated with them. In order for us to keep costs as low as possible and continue to deliver our produce at the most competitive price while maintaining high quality, we have opted to operate on a cash/check basis only. Our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

NO Smoking! We are a smoke free facility.

NO Pets! Certified Service Animals only.

No personal containers. The Department of Agriculture does not allow us to permit personal containers for picking fruit, at our farm. Your may, and are, encouraged to bring your own bags, however we ask that the are new or freshly laundered prior to being use at the farm.
