Find a local pick your own farm here!

Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Northeast Colorado?  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. 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just steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China), so theirs are usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly!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!

Notes for October 2017: Apples are in season now, as are figs,  and Fall raspberries are in season now. Tomatoes are going strong, although the crop is way diminished in rainy areas like the southeast.  Both early apples, like Gala, and mid season like Delicious and Honeycrisp are in season!

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!

    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. "
