Let’s Go Grape Picking!
Picking grapes can be a lot of fun but it is also a lot of work! When you arrive at the grape-picking location, check in with the business staff first. The staff can relay important information such as where to pick and where NOT to pick.
Generally, if you are picking table grapes, they are harvested in bunches, you will not be picking single grapes. You have to harvest table grapes with snippers. The grape vines are easily hurt and can be damaged during picking if you are not careful. If grape bunches are torn from the vine it can cause an infection of the vine. For table grape picking be sure to call ahead to see if you need to bring your own pointed-nose scissors or if the location provides them.
When heading out to pick grapes in Ohio, be sure to dress for success! We are talking about wearing comfortable shoes that can get dirty. Wear comfortable clothes that will protect you from the sun and clothes that are okay to get dirty or stained. We always recommend a big floppy hat for sun protection!

Cindy’s Insider Ohio Tips
Fruit picking is very popular in Ohio, but sadly grapes are not grown as much as they used to be in many parts of the state. Grab the opportunity to pick yourself some grapes before this activity becomes obsolete in this state. Don’t panic though, the winery trade in Ohio is still thriving!
