Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Wichita Area of Kansas? Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Wichita Area of Kansas,
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just steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China), so theirs are usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly!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!

in those areas, soon also strawberries and blueberries.Check your area's

replanting process began in 2015 with a little patch of test peach
varieties. We will continue to plant more trees (including peaches,
cherries, apples and even some blueberries) in the coming years. Once known
as the peach capital of the world, southern Wichita hosted many peach
orchards with one of the country's most renowned being Blood Orchard.The
building was built in 1885 and has been owned by four generations of the
Blood family. Blood Orchards peach trees were contaminated by salt in the
ground water in 1984, thus ending over 100 years of orchards on the family
owned property.There should be a few peach trees ready for picking in
2017!!! Keep checking our website or blog for more updates!!! (ADDED:
July 16, 2016, Suggested by a visitor)
A visitor writes on July 16,
2016: "just read about this orchard in the Cowtown member\s newspaper
(July 2016). An old homestead of their ancestors was donated years ago. This
orchard was one of the first in Wichita; having been in existence since
1885! The orchard suffered a near fatal blow years ago when underground salt
water contaminated their water supply. They replanted their peach orchard in
2015(?), but a crop will not be ready until 2017. Other items have recovered
well and are available as they come in season. They also have a reBorn store
on premises. My knowledge of this orchard is very limited, so I would
encourage you to call and get additional information. I am planning a visit
next month when they will have watermelon and cantelope."
