Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Phoenix and Surrounding Counties in Arizona? Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Phoenix and Surrounding Counties in Arizona,
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just steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China), so theirs are usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly!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!

much limited to Florida, Texas, southern California and a few other areas of the
Deep South. Citus, for one, is a crop that is usually available now; and
in those areas, soon also strawberries and blueberries.Check your area's
copy calendar (see this page) and call your local farms for

Comments from a visitor on June 29, 2012:
"Just thought I would update your comments section on this wonderful farm.
Tomatoes are still "on" and are so good! Still just 2.00 per pound. Their
corn is picked every day and sooooo delicious. Originally from Iowa I think
the tomatoes are every bit as good. And corn just has to be cooked the day
it is picked!!!!!!! I stopped even trying to grow my own. I visit 2 per week
and have been feasting on the produce! "
Comments from a visitor on November 11, 2010:
"I was reading all the good feedback on the farm and thought I would let you
know I have been there several times. I have taken Bus loads of little ones
from the School Districts to see the farm. They all have such a great time
when they are there. If not for this farm I don`t think a majority of the
kids would ever see farm animals up close or pick vegetables right out of
the garden. They are all so cute when they get on the Bus to go home with
their little bags of vegetables and small pint sized pumpkins. They really
enjoy themselves when they are there. And some of the Teacher`s I have heard
them talk about when they were kids and on their grand parents farm how
coming to Tolmachoff`s Farm has brought back memories. I think it is great
what they do for the kids. I enjoy getting the field trips myself. I love
going to the Farm. Thanks Tolmcchoff`s for All you do. Hope to see you
Comments from a visitor on June 26, 2010:
"Tomatoes this year at Tolmachoff Farms are especially good. Phoenix, AZ
spring weather was milder than usual and thus was kinder than normal to
their tomatoes. Big ole beefsteaks like my Grandma used to grow in Kansas. I
especially like their heirloom brandywines. They say they should have
tomatoes into July this season and I have to wait another week for
cantaloupe. Tomatoes this year are $2 a pound and well worth it. Growing
tomatoes in our dry hot climate is a monumental challenge and Tolmachoff
pulls it off year after year. Special Note: Arizona tomatoes are different
than those grown in the Midwest or Jersey. The culprit is the soil and the
heat here. But biting into a big juicy meaty tomato makes up for the taste
difference. I have been in Phoenix since 1974 and a customer of Tolmachoff
since I found them on yet another quest to find a good tomato. Enjoy"
Comments from a visitor on September 14, 2008: "we love tolmachoff farms, when
their sweet corn and vineripe tomatoes are in season they are the best in
this state. we can't wait for this pumpkin season its so much fun."
Comments from a visitor on September 05, 2008: "I have been a customer of
Tolmachoff Farms for many years!! Every year seems to get better and better!
My children have such a terrific time when we have visited!! From the
petting zoo, to the train ride and the wonderful vegetable garden and large
assortment of pumpkins, YOU just couldn't ask for more!!!!!!! The employees
have always been courteous and very helpful when it comes to providing us
with information about the farm or any general questions we have had. They
are very professional. The best time to visit the farm is in October when
they have so many fun activities!!! The haunted corn maze its definitely our
favorite, not to mention a low admission cost which is also a great deal!! A
lot of the other haunted mazes in town can be twice as much if not more!!!!!
Definitely would recommend this farm experience to any family wanting to
have some good fun for a great price!! You can tell this is a real FAMILY
RUN farm, it definitely shows!!! "
Comments from a visitor on September 04, 2008: "I just read some of the
comments on your site and I wanted to let you know that we have gone to the
farm for many years and enjoy everything they have to offer and everyone is
so friendly. They offer activities for children of all ages, we have many
great memories of the farm. Each year they add more & more we will continue
to go every year, our 4 year old son would not come out of the corn box
"what a blast". We are looking forward to this up coming season. Sincerly,
Comments from a visitor on February 1, 2008: "I also
visited in October, during the fall festival. I didn't find the entrance fee
unreasonable or any employees rude, and we had a blast! Especially our 8
year old daughter. The farm had a petting zoo, bounce houses, 2 corn mazes,
a kid's 'train' ride, a tricycle racing area, and some kids playground
equipment. The pumpkins were a little expensive, but the rest of the goods
in the market were reasonable. We bought preserves, apple butter, and one

They are a early ripening type and are wonderful. Late June Peaches start to
