The CSI U-Pick farm has now added evening hours as the berry and vegetable season is in full swing. Pick your own raspberries and vegetables at the College of Southern Idaho’s Breckenridge Endowment Farm on North College Road!. Families are invited to come to the farm during its open hours and pick the produce themselves.
The CSI Agriculture Department makes the produce available each summer and welcomes customers while the produce lasts. All the raspberries are $3.50 per pound - purples and reds are on now - and vegetables are 75-cents a pound.
Vegetables at the U-pick garden this year will include snap beans, eggplant, tomatoes, cucumbers, crookneck and zucchini squash, winter squash, broccoli, leeks, red, Russet, and Yukon Gold potatoes, fingerling potatoes, sweet corn, pumpkins, watermelons, and cantaloupes. Most vegetables are not ripe enough to pick yet but should be ready within coming weeks. All vegetables will be sold for 75-cents a pound. Veggies that are coming on right now include yellow crookneck and zucchini, as well as green bell peppers and yellow sweet gypsy peppers
No appointments are necessary. The garden is now staffed from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays as well as 5 to 8 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays. Beginning Saturday, Aug. 2, you can also pick from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays. Buckets will be available on site for picking but customers must bring their own containers to take the produce home.
The Breckenridge Endowment Farm is located on North College Road directly across from the CSI Expo Center. It borders the CSI Community Gardens and Twin Falls Farmers Market locations. For more information, call 732-6401.
