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.
