U-Pick Vegetables at Hilltop Hanover Farm

“It’s a great way to get your hands dirty and be a part of the farm-to-table community."




U-Pick at Hilltop Hanover Farm

July marks the start of u-pick season at Hilltop Hanover Farm and Environmental Center, in Yorktown Heights. Beginning this month, Hilltop Hanover’s pick-your-own fields are open to the public every Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. “U-Pick takes eating locally to whole new level,” says Shanyn Siegel, farm director. “It’s a great way to get your hands dirty and be a part of the farm-to-table community."

Unlike many other u-pick operations, which focus on fruit, Hilltop Hanover grows fields of pick-your-own vegetables, herbs and flowers. The u-pick fields follow the seasonal crop cycle: lots of greens and fresh herbs early on, followed by fruiting crops, including cucumbers, tomatoes and peppers. All produce at Hilltop Hanover is grown using only organic practices. Volunteers and farmers are available to show visitors where and how to harvest vegetables.

There is no charge to enter the u-pick fields at Hilltop Hanover; produce is paid for at the farm stand after harvesting. The farm stand also carries eggs, honey and value-added products from throughout the Hudson Valley. U-pick may close in inclement weather, so call ahead if the weather looks questionable.
