Find a local pick your own farm here!

Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Northeast Colorado? Farms are open and safe! Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Northeast Colorado, 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. If you find anything outdated or inaccurate, see the customer and farmer menus (as appropriate) at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!

New! Pricing information - I am building a pricing guide to help you know what the typical prices are for each crop.

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   I'm making updates for this year as fast as I can - if you find anything out-of-date, wrong or not working - please let me know! This website is supported by purchases you make through the links to products on Amazon. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. This allows me to continue to maintain the website and make improvements!

What's in season in August 2020, and other timely information:

Notes for August 2020: Summer is almost here! Strawberry season is finished in all but the far northern ands cooler areas. Blueberries, blackberries are in season in most areas, also tomatoes, peaches and most vegetables . Check your area's copy calendar (see this page) and call your local farms for seasonal updates.

Now, more than ever, going to a farm, being outside, away from crowds, getting fresh, local produce, makes more sense than ever before! It's a fun, safe and educational to pick some fresh berries, fruit and veggies and more, then come back here to learn how to freeze, can, make jam, salsa and much more! Of course, check with the farm before you go, both to check on crop availability and hours.  We also have a state-by-state guide to Farm COVID-19 requirements here.

See our comprehensive list of easy home canning, jam and jelly making, 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, using similar sounding names.  They have all copied their information from 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 or outdated, please write me!

Canners, both waterbath canners and pressure canners, are getting hard to find as people are doing more home canning than ever before. You can still get them online (see links at left) but prices are going up as the less expensive models are selling out.  Food dehydration is becoming a popular and inexpensive alternative; see this page about drying your own fruits and vegetables and where to get a food dryer.

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!

See these pages to find a local Strawberry Festival, or a Cherry or cherry blossom festival or a Blueberry festival. Some may still be held in 2020.

    Comments from a visitor on September 18, 2010: "This was a great experience for me and my three kids. We got a ridiculous amount of vegetables (which I should be canning, instead of typing on the computer!) The kids and I climbed into a huge wagon towed by a tractor and we were ferried around to different fields. We picked beets, cabbage, corn, peppers, basil, potatoes, onions, leeks, carrots, and more! The produce was very nice quality, and the drivers were helpful at each stop. My only gripe is that we were just turned out into the fields without any instructions about what to look for, or any tools. Some of the produce (like cabbages) were tricky to harvest without help. The drivers were available to dig carrots and leeks for us, which was appreciated. There is a large play area at the front of the farm with sheltered tables. After our harvesting trip (which took about 2 hours), we ate lunch, then the kids were able to play on the hay pyramid, fence maze, and pedal-operated "tractors." Wagons were provided for us to pull our produce out to the car. Overall, this was a fun trip and an amazing value. I will probably go back later this season to get some different veggies, and I will DEFINITELY return next year."
    Comments from a visitor on September 09, 2010: "We loved being at Miller Farms. There were a ton of different activities for the children. The fields to pick produce from are so vast. We got a very large selection of vegetables. There was a lot of fun things, like a giant jumping air pillow, and a massive hay pyramid, for the children to enjoy. The prices were so good for what you get. "
