Pick-Your-Own at Gogle Farms
If you are interested in the experience of pick-your-own at Gogle Farms you are in luck! We offer Pick your own sweet and sour cherries, yellow peaches, apples, and jack-o-lanterns based on the season. See our ripening schedule or follow us on Facebook to stay up to date on what fruit is available when.
At Gogle Farms we sell all of our products by volume instead of by weight. For Pick-your-own, we use peck and ½ bushel baskets. The baskets have a plastic bag liner that will be used to take your fruit home. Peck baskets hold approx. 10lbs and a ½ bushel holds approx. 20lbs. A ½ bushel basket is typically referred to as a peach basket. We will not weigh your basket after picking – prices are determined by basket size.
FREE Hayrides to pick-your-own peaches, apples and jack-o-lanterns (weather permitting). We do not offer hayrides for Cherries or on Fridays but you can walk to pick-your-own.

Gogle Farms Grown Potatoes
Growing up the Gogle Children were regaled with stories from their Great Grandpop about taking potatoes to the train in Rockdale by horse drawn wagon. Potatoes were a staple at not only Gogle Farms, but many family run farms in the area at the time Great Grandpop Gogle was growing up. So when it came time for the now grown up Gogle children to decide what to plant on their farm, they chose to honor their Great Grandpop by planting potatoes.
What potatoes we grow:
- Red Potatoes (red skin, white flesh)
- Purple Potatoes (purple skin, yellow flesh)
- Peter Wilcox variety also called Purple Gold
- Lehigh Potatoes (buff skin, yellow flesh)
- Developed at Cornell University to be more productive in the North East. Named Lehigh after the rich potato growing heritage of the Lehigh Valley.
