What kid doesn’t like a chance to run through a country farm? Even better when blushing peaches hang low on the trees, ripe for picking. Peach orchards throughout New Jersey invite visitors to come and pick their own peaches; some charge a small admission fee to the orchards, others charge for what is picked. Some have created special events, taking visitors out to the orchards in tractor-pulled wagons.

Following are the farms and orchards for “picking your own peaches,” Note, pickers should be in the fields well prior to closing times. For full details, hours of operation, and direction, follow the links to individual farms.
