Please fill out the form below to request volunteer assistance for harvesting your fruit trees. If your home or property has been harvested by Village Harvest in the past, please fill in our Harvest Request page instead.

Also, please check the list at the right to verify you are within our service area. If you're outside our area we'll be glad to help you find alternatives.

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 150 pounds / 6 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:

  • 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.

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.
