  • Fresh Produce Around Harpers Ferry

    by harteehar Written Aug 8, 2011

    While Harpers Ferry National Historic Park is a destination for many, the surrounding area is also worth exploring for a you-pick experience for fresh produce.

    The summer of 2010 we visited Ridgefield Farm and Orchard during July to pick fresh flowers we brought back to our host's home we were staying at for a few weeks.

    In August 2010 we found The Fruit & Veggie Wagon at the corner of Route 340 and Old Country Club Road as evening was setting in. We took home a nice ripe peck of peaches, which is about 10 pounds, to make peach preserves at our host's home. These were the freshest peaches ever.

    This summer, 2011, we decided to explore more of the u-pick farms and farm stands while visiting the Harpers Ferry area to go tubing and rafting.

    The Fruit & Veggie Wagon was right where it was last year and again we picked up a peck of peaches, several ears of corn, tomatos and zuchini. Inquiring with the proprietor as to the wide variety of vegetables and fruit, she told us it was all from her farm. We asked about her peaches and learned that she picks what is necessary so they are ripe off the tree. Again we made peach preserves for our host and these peaches were delicious.
