Important  U-Pick Information

We want everyone to have a fun and safe time at Dooley Groves.
Seriously, we are a WORKING FARM and MANY HAZZARDS
exist that could hurt your children!

For their safety, parents keep children at your side
at all times and listen to the Grove Guides.

Your Grove Guide knows their way around and will bring you out to our grove and show you where to pick. Please stay in the picking area that your Grove Guide puts you in, since many days there are employees working in other areas of the grove with machinery and they’re NOT looking for you and we don’t want you to get hurt, being where you don’t belong.

Due to insurance regulations, Dooley Groves Wagons are for FRUIT only. Children are NOT permitted to ride in our wagons.

Dooley Groves reserves the right to inspect returning wagons,
strollers and any other item.

Backpacks or large bags/ large purses are
NOT allowed out in the grove.

Please do not bring any valuables or purses out to U-Pick.
Dooley Groves will not be responsible for loss of any item.

Children must be with a parent at all times.
NO Clippers for Children without direct Parental Supervision.
Sorry… NO pets.

Please return the Clippers to Your Grove Guide when you
are finished U-Picking.
You will be charged $10 for unreturned/lost clippers.

Do Not eat the fruit directly off the tree while out in the grove.
All U-Picked fruit needs to be washed off first, before eating.

All U-Pick sales are final. Pick only what you intend on paying for.
You will be charged for all fruit picked.
