Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Québec? Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Québec,
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as well as some 20-somethings trying to make a quick buck), so theirs are always out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly.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anything out-of-date, wrong or not working -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!

MIRACLE FARMS is a members only u-pick farm. Only members can come pick
fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers or order meats. We try to also have
some items (non-meat) for sale in a small kiosk, especially for open days.
If you are in a hurry, not a member or just passing by you can buy some of
the foods picked at double the u-pick price. It's a great way to try before
you join. Here's how the membership works : A basic fee of $60 (as of August
2018) entitles you to: $20 voucher to be used for any food in the year. at
least one food or non-food item for free during every open day. 1 free tour
for 2 adults (a $60 value, free for children under 18). Tours are on the
first Saturday of every month at 10 am in French and 2 pm in English. You
can attend our open days to come relax at the farm, have a picnic, read a
book, take a walk, have a nap, meet amazing people who care about the food
they eat or pick whatever is available that day. You don't need to buy
anything during open days. We try to have something free at every open day
for members, whatever we have in abundance. Last year that included small
fruit, chives, garlic chives, flowers and herbs at different times of the
growing season. Two years ago we had such abundance that we gave members 160
pounds of apples and lots of free produce, including chives and rhubarb. You
can also pre-order chicken and duck meat that is raised in the orchard.
Order now and pick up the meats in the fall (september and October). Note
that meat pre-orders are provided on a first-come first-serve basis.(ADDED:
