Have a berry good time at George Schmidt Berry Farm


Our bounty from last year's visit.

A great treat and Spring/Summer activity in the
LehighValley is the many Pick Your Own (PYO) farms. One such farm located in New Tripoli, George Schmidt Berry Farm, offers strawberries, blueberries, red raspberries, peaches, blackberries and sour cherries, as well as sugar peas, pod peas, and string beans!
