Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Georgia? Scroll down this page and select your region of the state for a list of U-Pick farms in Georgia, sorted by county. Farms offering 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?"). If they have a website, the name will be in blue and underlined; click on it and it will open their website. And if you are looking for a local farm stand, roadside stand, farm market or local farmer's market, see our new website, dedicated to those! See your state's crop availability calendar for specific dates of upcoming crops. And for Fall fun, see these pages to find pumpkin patches and corn mazes.. and even Zombie paintball.
And if you know of farm I missed and want to add it or correct the information, please let me know!
Notes for February 2018: The northern half of the U.S. (and most of Canada, of course) are under snow. So, the crops to pick are pretty 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 seasonal updates.
We also have a website for both Valentine's Day information, facts and fun and one for St. Patrick's day (including great recipes for corned beef, Irish stew, etc.)
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!
Next year, don't miss an Easter Egg Hunt for your children: See our companion website to find a local Easter Egg hunt!
We also have home canning, 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. 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!

These two are NOT pick-your-own farms, they are homeowners with a couple of acres, so they have huge gardens and sell their home-grown tomatoes. I've had some of their tomatoes, and they are excellent! Both are very close to Gwinnett Place Mall (Costco, Sam's Club, etc.) Here's where to find them. Be sure to tell them where you heard about them!

Email me from Feedback if you'd like to recommend a home vegetable stand in your area! As long as it is truly a home stand, not a big commercial market stand, I'll add it! I'd just like to give the mom and pop (and children) who are selling their extra home grown veggies a boost!
