At the beginning of the season, we brought you this handy guide to farmers markets and farm stands in and around Newport, and we're hoping you got your hands on some local, fresh goodies. Now, we want you to get your hands dirty. Next on our list of summertime experiences: pick-your-own orchards. From sweet blueberries to tasty raspberries, these pick-your-own orchards have the sweet treats you crave, ripe for the pickin' straight through Autumn.
1 Sweet Berry Farm
Located in Middletown, Sweet Berry Farm sits on 100 acres of preserved farmland. From strawberries in the summer to pumpkins come fall and Christmas trees to deck your halls, Sweet Berry is a hub for all things locally grown. Bonus: they have a cafe on property that serves up savory snacks and sweet treats, plus a selection of artisan cheeses, smoked meats and unique gifts. We call that an experience.
