At Knapton’s, most things that are grown are available as pick-your-own. “Raspberries in mid June – July, August – October. (There is a transition between summer and fall varieties.) There is never a day without raspberries in the field during summer and fall. However, each variety has its peak of production. The 4th of July and a week or two before the state fair are generally good dates to remember for berry picking bliss. But that is not to say other times of the year aren’t really good too. The slowest time is right at the end of July or August 1st. Give us a call before you head out. Every year is different. These are average ripening times.

Braeutigam Orchards “has been in the family since 1831, but it wasn’t until 1935 that Rollin Braeutigam started raising fruit. Rollie enjoyed selling fruit to his friends so much that he raised more than he could sell! So he decided to take his beautiful ripe peaches to the St. Louis Market.
Lester, his son, and Marie, his daughter-in-law, helped him load those peaches in a truck and drove to St. Louis. Unfortunately, they did not realize that the market wanted greener fruit and they did not receive a good price. But Rollin and Lester believed tree-ripened peaches had the best and most appeal. Marie said, “Don’t worry we will just sell the peaches right on the farm!”

Tomatoes: The rich, sweet, complex taste of freshly picked tomatoes is unmistakable, and you will find it at our farm. We grow beefsteak and plum tomatoes, red and yellow grape tomatoes, red, yellow, orange, chocolate, and black cherry tomatoes, and two varieties of heirloom tomatoes. All of our tomatoes are trellised, and grown on black plastic to insure that they are of the best possible quality.
Beans: We offer three different varieties of Green Bush Beans, each of which produces a very high quality dark green bean with a slim pod and excellent eating quality. We also offer one variety of Bush Wax Bean, and one variety of Romano Bush Bean.
Pumpkins: Our pumpkins are of the highest quality, ranging in size from 3 to 30 lbs, all with strong handles and a deep orange color. They are available beginning the end of September.
