Find a local pick your own farm here!

Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Southwest Arkansas?  Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Southwest Arkansas, sorted by county. Those that offer organic or sustainably grown produce are identified by the words "organic" and/or "sustainable" in Green, next to their name  (see "What does Organic mean?"). The U-pick crops they offer follow the name of the farm. To search the page for a specific crop, use Ctrl-F (or on an ipad or Mac, use their "search on this page" function) If they have a website, the name will be in blue and underlined; click on it and it will open their website. Beware of copycat websites (such as the one that starts with "pickit" and the one that ends with ".farms"; they do not update their information, they just steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China), so theirs are usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly! I put dates to indicate when we last received an update from each farm, and I make updates daily (each farm as their info changes). See the customer and farmer menus at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!

And if you know of any I missed and want to add them or correct the information, please let me know!  

What's in season in April 2017, and other timely information:

Notes for April 2017: The warm winter means strawberries will be EARLY this year! Move the dates ahead by 2 - 3 weeks on our state crop availability calendars for strawberries; see your state's calendar for more dates of upcoming crops. Blueberries have already started in FL and TX.

Next year, don't miss an Easter Egg Hunt for your children: See our companion website to find a local Easter Egg hunt!

Children's Consignment Sales occur in both the Spring and Fall  See our companion website to find a local community or church kid's consignment sale!

We also have home canning, preserving, drying and freezing directions. You can access recipes and other resources from the drop down menus at the top of the page or the site search. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to write me! It is easy to make your own ice cream, even gelato, or low fat or low sugar ice cream - see this page. Also note, there are many copycat website listing U-pick farms now.  They have all copied their information form here and usually do not ever update.  Since 2002, I've been updating the information every day but Christmas; so if you see anything wrong, please write me!

Clark County

  • 5 K Orchard - Strawberries, blackberries, peaches (Red Globe, Alberta, and many other varieties), muscadines (purple and white).
    South Kratz Road, Donaldson, AR 71941. Phone: 501-384-2486. Open: Monday through Saturday from 8am to 5pm from sometime in May until the first of October.  Comments from a visitor on October 11, 2008: "I love this farm. The owners are friendly and the farm is clean and neat. The picking is controlled so that you are not picking behind someone else or in a row that was recently picked. Rides to and from the picking areas are available. They are proud of their products and for good reason. You can also opt to buy fruit that has been picked, if you are busy, and the quality is as good as if you picked yourself. Call for Muscadines because the crop can go through October after they "officially" close for the season. Sani-cans are available. I don't know about the organic question. They take checks and cash. (I have never asked about credit cards) Crafts are available with other products such as: farm fresh eggs, jellies and jams, honey, bread mixes, plants, etc..."
