It’s berry picking time in the Catskills! Strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries. Before you head into the fields, here’s a quick picking tip: unlike other fruits, raspberries don’t ripen more once they have been picked. So, aim to pick them at their very best – when they are plump and juicy on the plant. Click here to discover local berry producers like, Blue Sky Farm & Winery, Middlefield Orchard, and Kelder’s Farm.
