Harvest Request

If your trees have previously been harvested by Village Harvest volunteers OR you have already submitted your contact and tree information before, please fill out the form below to request harvesting of your fruit trees. If you have never registered your home or property with us, please fill in our Home Sign Up page instead.

Because of high interest unfortunately we are not able to assist everyone who offers their fruit; we anticipate being able to serve 1 of every 3 requests but this varies by community and season. We give priority to:

  • Seniors or those physically unable to pick their own tree(s),
  • Homes with a larger amount (more than 100 pounds / 4 milk crates worth of citrus, apples, or persimmons, or 40 pounds / 2 milk crates of apricots, plums, or peaches),
  • Where we can pick several homes nearby on the same date.

Most types of tree fruit are harvested, with some limitations that vary by season:

  • Grapefruit: Most of our food agency partners can only distribute small amounts of grapefruit each week because of the medication restrictions of their clients and low demand. Homes with grapefruit may be lower priority and trees only partially harvested.

After signing up, a harvest organizer will contact you if they are arranging a harvest, but you will not be contacted until we plan to harvest in your neighborhood.

For the best possibility contact us 1 to 2 months before your fruit will be ripe.

Volunteer harvesting is provided at no charge but availability is limited. We are grateful for donations of $25 or more to cover part of the expenses of providing this service.
