Farms are a rich part of the Pocono culture and history. Their rolling hills, barns and silos are fixtures of the region’s rural landscape. Local farms, including tree, orchards, and vineyards across the Pocono Mountains are opening their gates, barn doors and fences, issuing a heartfelt invitation to sample the abundant bounty and natural beauty found in the Poconos growing adventure—agritourism. Sip, taste, relax and explore. There’s plenty to fill a Pocono weekend getaway.
At Coutts Berry Farm and Paupack Blueberry Farm, pick-your-own blueberries are normally available from the end of July through Labor Day. Paupack Blueberry Farm also offers ice cream, jams, jellies, relish and baked goods. The store opens in June and closes after Labor Day in early September.
The Cooperage Farmers Market strives to provide weekly access to superb local agricultural products. The market is a vibrant and friendly gathering of exemplary local producers and enthusiastic consumers, connecting through a mutual appreciation for each other and for the regional food shed. It’s open weekly (or every other week, depending on the season) on Saturdays from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m.
In business for 36 years, the Village Farmer and Bakery is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day except Christmas. Watch the pies being made at this bakery and farmers market, where all the baking is done on premises. Located in the beautiful Pocono Mountains, enjoy pot pies, sandwiches and grilled food in addition to their large selection of baked goods. Local crafts are also available for sale. BBQ is served on the weekends.
