Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Colusa, Lake, Napa, Sacramento, Solano, Sutter, Yolo and Yuba counties in California? Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Colusa, Lake, Napa, Sacramento, Solano, Sutter, Yolo and Yuba counties in California,
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 "Eatwell", "pickit" and the ones that ends with ".farm"; they do not verify or update their information, they just steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China,
as well as some 20-somethings trying to make a quick buck), so theirs are always out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly.
Since 2002, I make updates daily (each farm as
changes are reported, or I find it). See the customer and farmer menus at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!
Remember to always check with the farm's own website or facebook
page before you go - or call or email them if they don't have a website or
Facebook page. Conditions at the farms and crops can change literally
overnight, so if you want to avoid a wasted trip out there - check with
the farm directly before you go!
And if you know of any farms I missed and want to
add a farm, please let me know!
I'm making updates for 2018 as fast as I can - if you find
anything out-of-date, wrong or not working -
please let me know!

Fresh, Local and Sustainable from Our Garden to Your Table. We grow our
vegetables using organic methods and allowing nature to do its job.
Through crop rotation and diversification we interrupt the life-cycles
of soil borne diseases and encourage healthier crop production. To keep
our pest populations low, we encourage predatory insects to make our
garden their home by planting beneficial plants in our habitat gardens.
Adequate pollination is accomplished by attracting bees using bee-loving
plants such as lavender, rosemary and nepeta, oh and of course the
blossoms from our fruit trees and vegetable plants.(UPDATED: May 07,

Comments from a visitor on July 28, 2009:
"They had everything..I counter about 7 different melons from casaba
to savors to a yellow meat watermelon--they have black eye peas,
purple hull peas, okra, squash, and the biggest onions in the world,
and some beautiful purple bell peppers( never seen those
before)..the watermelon is to die for and I eat a passport
melon(something new)on the way home. I was there on Sunday and they
had Live Jazz on the farm. They said they do tours for kids and
community groups. They had an employee restroom that they let me
used, which was very clean. There is a nice pinic area with a
manicured lawn, with BBQ pit access. This is not an organic farm
however the farm said he only sprays when he has too. The crops look
amazing you can but your items already picked and shelled or pick
your own. Personally, I got a bag of shelled black eyes for $13.50
for 5lbs my mother was impressed. I was able to lie and say I picked
them myself.I loved the veggies and people. From the diverse
staff to the multi-cultural customers, I did not want to leave so
they told me to go hang out on the lawn and eat my melons, so I did
with the Jazz."
