Raspberries

Come on over to Guenthenspberger Farms for a fun-filled day with the whole family picking fresh raspberries.  Never picked raspberries before?  We can teach you how to select the ripest, juiciest berries in the patch

Guenthenspberger Farms sells several varieties and colors of raspberries; look for us at farmer's markets throughout the season.

A taste of the offerings from Guenthenspberger Farms

Raspberries are available from Guenthenspberger Farms in a variety of colors and tastes:
  • Red raspberries are available from mid June to early July.  We offer you-pick and a limited supply of pre-picked raspberries.  These are high in Vitamin C and in gallic acid.  Red raspberries help fight cancer, heart and circulatory diseases and ellagic acid has been shown to have anti-inflammatory qualities.
  • Black raspberries are available from the end of June to early July.  These are very popular.  We offer you-pick and a limited supply of pre-picked raspberries.  Black raspberries contain some of the highest levels of anthocyanins (an anti-oxidant) available, which help to improve vision, control diabetes, improve circulation and prevent cancer and premature aging.

Raspberries are grown in trellised rows with a grassy aisle between rows.  Don't worry about crawling around in the brambles competing with local wildlife, risking poison ivy or bug bites in your quest to find the best berries.

We also have the tastiest peaches on the planet!

Our growing practices

Many people think that organic farming means "no chemicals" are ever used.  In fact, organic growers can and do use chemicals on their products; however, these chemicals typically are those found in nature (with the exception of copper).  Most organic farms are very small growers located in hot and dry areas where pests naturally are limited.  Growing organic produce here in Indiana simply is not feasible economically on a large scale.  Guenthenspberger Farms uses chemicals only when necessary, and we carefully follow all labeled precautions.  We use only those chemicals approved for the specific pest and crop.  We also take full advantage of integrated pest management technology to reduce the need for insecticides and fungicides.

Without chemicals, the food you take home would be of poor quality and there would be less to take home.  Most organic farms are very small growers located in hot and dry areas where pests are limited anyway.  Growing organic produce here in Indiana is simply not feasible.  Although we recommend that you wash your produce before eating it, the ordinary contaminants you might carry on your hands when you pick the produce (germs, dirt, yucky stuff from your steering wheel) are a greater concern the anything you might find on the fruit.
