It’s harvest season and PA Wineries need YOUR help! Live out your dreams of becoming a winemaker by helping these wineries harvest their grapes.
Read on for more details on how you can get involved:
Come harvest alongside the Haines family as we pick grapes during the harvest season (September through October). Because of the nature of farming, we are unable to predict whether harvest will take place during the week or on a weekend. We begin around 8:30am. After a short instruction time, you will spend the morning picking grapes, followed by lunch. Depending on the day and the grapes, we may continue to pick in the afternoon as well. Email [email protected] and let us know you are interested in picking. We will place your name on our “picker list” and will notify you each time we are harvesting so that you can choose a time to sign up that works for you.
The Winery at the Long Shot Farm
Volunteer grape harvesters are welcome at the Long Shot Farm. Weekends in mid-September through October are our main harvest times. If you are interested, email us with your availability and we’ll add you to our list of volunteers. Email [email protected] with your contact information and note which dates you could volunteer.

All volunteers will receive Penns Woods 2021 Harvest exclusive merch! Please note that due to weather & the grape ripening process, harvest dates & times are difficult to determine too far in advance. Volunteers will be notified via email 1-4 days prior to a scheduled date with details on time, vineyard location, etc.
A few days before our harvest days we send out on all social and to our newsletter an invite that welcomes anyone to come to join our harvest! We start early and usually end around lunchtime. Pruners, gloves, lunch & of course wine will be provided to all volunteers. Sign up for our newsletter on www.WAYVINE.wine or just follow our social media. No reservations are required just show up the day our posts say we will be harvesting. All details will be provided there.
