Tucked away between the Rio Grande River and the Corrales Community Farms lies a small patch of raspberry heaven. Heidi’s Raspberry U-Pick farm was started by Heidi Eleftheriou in 2001. Since then, visitors from all over New Mexico come to pick in-season raspberries from the many patches at the farm. Families can be seen laughing and peeking through vines along the lush raspberry corridors.

Approximately 500 visitors come through the farm during the peak season, Eliftheriou said. For only $6 dollars a pint, fresh raspberries can belong to any passerby.
