Roma Tomato u-picks are scheduled for 4 weekend mornings. Members can come out and pick up to 10 pounds of tomatoes (per share, not per family) at no cost; additional pounds will be available at $1.50 per pound, quantities permitting.
We need to know if you will be coming out to pick and how many pounds of tomatoes you want to pick.
RSVP is required. Please complete this Survey Monkey form.
If there are more requests than ripe tomatoes, we will ask you to wait until the next u-pick.
Arrive at the start time of 9:00am! If you arrive late the u-pick may be over.
Checks and cash accepted; sorry, no credit cards.
A note on the weather: Madison weather is often different from what we are experiencing on the farm. If the weather looks questionable at home on the morning of a U-Pick bring a rain jacket and boots. All events are rain or shine.
U-Pick Dates and Times:
Sunday, August 12, 9:00 am
Saturday, August 18, 9:00 am
Saturday, August 25, 9:00 am
Sunday, September 2, 9:00 am
Bring your own containers or bags to pick into and to transport your tomatoes home.
The farm always can use plastic bags and neatly folded full sized paper bags. Bring some if you have them.
Roma tomatoes are perfect for sauce and salsa because they are less juicy than slicing tomatoes. They are also delicious to eat and do keep very well. We have several varieties of traditional Roma tomatoes (all red varieties) and varieties of interesting heirloom varieties (a mix of colors and shapes with very rich flavors).
Hot Peppers: Available for $4.00 per pound.
Tomatillos: Available for $3.00 per pound.
Garlic: Available for $7.00 per pound.
Basil: No cost.
Please leave your dogs at home; as always.
