Current Picking Conditions 

Blueberries

Blueberry picking is closed today. Please check back around June 15 for an update on picking conditions. Thank you.

Peach picking is closed today. Due to heavy damage from a spring freeze, the availability of Bennett peaches in 2016 will be limited.  Please check back later this summer for an update. Thank you. 

Current Farmers Market Status

We look forward to seeing all of our loyal customers at our farmers market locations this year. Look for Bennett Blueberries around the first or second week in June. Also, new for 2016, we are now growing six varieties of Bennett Exotic Melons, available at our farmers markets from around the middle of July until the end of August. Due to spring frost damage our peach crop will be limited this year. Check back in the beginning of June for crop updates and availability. To see a list of the farmers markets that we will be attending this year, refer to our farmers markets tab above. 

Bennett Orchards

The Bennett family invites you to enjoy the unique summertime experience of visiting us at one of our daily farmers market locations offering hand-selected Bennett Blueberries, Peaches and Exotic Melons; or picking your own tree-ripened peaches, nectarines and fresh blueberries at our historic sixth-generation farm. We are committed to providing our customers with the best possible product as well as an authentic agricultural experience. 

Located eight miles from the beach in southeastern Sussex County, Delaware, we welcome you to our farm to pick your own peaches, nectarines and  blueberries direct from our orchards.  We take advantage of the Delmarva Peninsula's temperate climate and fertile soil to offer you these delectable fruits every summer.  Picking isn't available every day, so always check our website first, for daily updates on current picking conditions. 

We also offer our fruit in season, daily at eight coastal farmers' markets in Delaware and Maryland. We select only the largest fruit by hand at the peak of ripeness, hours before the market, to provide our customers with the most flavorful fruit on Delmarva. See our farmers' market tab above for market times and locations. We also update our home page daily in season with our farmers market status and offerings for that day.
