Gieringer’s Family Orchard & Berry Farm is a family owned farm located in the southwest corner of Johnson County, Kansas in Edgerton, Kansas. Franklin, Douglas and Miami Counties are all just a few miles from us. We grow a variety of fruits and vegetables that we offer to the public on our U-pick farm. You can also buy our products at two local farmers markets, Overland Park and Lawrence.
The season begins in early May with about 50,000 strawberry plants which you can pick or purchase as pre-picked. We also have a limited supply of cheddar and purple cauliflower during this time.
In June, our U-pick blueberries and blackberries ripen and can also be picked or purchased as pre-picked in the farm market on our property.
During berry season, we have fresh strawberry or blueberry donuts and strawberry lemonade slushees.
U-pick peaches and pre-picked tomatoes and sweet corn will be available from late June through August.
Beginning in September, we’ll start our fall season off with a large field of sunflowers and
U-pick pumpkins. Our pumpkins weigh anywhere between 1 to 100+ pounds and come in a variety of colors. Orange, yellow, white and even pink! There are always lots of family friendly activities for folks of all ages. Here are just a few. Interactive corn maze, pumpkin jump pad, giant corn pit, wagon rides, hay mountain, combine slides, pumpkin spice donuts and cider slushees which can be enjoyed in our shaded picnic area.
We also support other local producers and our community. You can find locally made honey, pickled jalapenos, jams and jellies in our farm market on U-pick days.
Another thing that we love to do is give group tours, parties and we’re a proud school field trip destination! Sharing agricultural fun facts and allowing everyone to have hands on learning opportunities is something we enjoy.
