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steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China), so theirs are usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly!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

"I have picked over 100 pounds of berries each of the last 3 years at
Illers. I just received a notecard from them today about opening soon. They have
pick our own or prepicked available. Just wanted to update you about them as I
plan to return and pick 200 pounds this year! My husband has a fruit smoothie

pick again, so my fingers will definitely be stained blue this month:)"
