Compared to berries from far-off places, berries picked nearby are fresher, riper, and have an easier time acclimating to your kitchen's imposed legal drinking age. Mitigate culinary culture shock with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get four Raspberry Festival admission tickets at Triple B Farms in Monongahela (a $20 value). This Groupon is good only for admission to the Raspberry Festival on July 9–10 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Calling ahead for crop conditions and arriving early for best pickings is recommended.
The berry experts at Triple B Farms invite Pittsburgh-area crop gatherers to fill farm-supplied baskets with fresh-grown seasonal fruits and enjoy a plethora of family-friendly games and activities. After arriving at the Raspberry Festival and donning the stylish all-day-access wristband, guests are free to roam the verdant rows of leafy berry-bursting plants in search of perfect, flavorful mouth-pleasers ($4.50 per lb). The delicious fruit’s devotees turn out en masse every year for the annual festival, which is a celebration of all things raspberry, including a visit from the Pennsylvania Honey Queen, an inflatable all-ages obstacle course, and question and answer sessions with famous raspberries. Triple B Farms’ Raspberry Fest also entertains children with a playground, farm animals, giant slides, and a rope maze; parents can peruse the farm's expansive selection of fresh-grown produce, baked goods, jams, and rustic lifestyle guides.
