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steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China), so theirs are usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly!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

What's in season in March 2018, and other
Notes for March 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

Comments from a visitor on September 17, 2010: " I Love this
Farm !!!!!! Another great year for Mr. Charlie and his family. They have the
best produce I have ever seen. And for 8.00 a five gallon bucket the prices
can't be beat. If your looking for fresh produce and you live within 100
miles of this farm you really need to go there, you won't be disappointed.
Tomatoes. Potatoes, Onions, Beans, Squash, Corn, Peppers, Carrots, Okra,
Peas, Watermelons, Cantaloupes,and I'm sure I'm missing some things.They may
also have a U-Pick strawberry field next spring. I can't wait for next year.
The best PYO in Mississippi. "
Comments from a visitor on June 12, 2010:
"I loved the farm but no shade of trees. Bring ice chest with water and
something to eat in the heat. Bring long sleeves for the okra and other tall
itching plants. Port O let were available and cold drinks were .50. Their
are other veg and fruit for sale under the pavilion. Their are different
types of tomatoes as well as beans. I have never heard of zipper beans or
noodle beans??? Could not find them anyway. Their web site is updated for
what veg will be in season at that time and for how long and what has been
picked out. They insist to bring your own bucket. They have 100 acres of :
yellow, white corn, Potatoes, onions, zuk, squash, okra, bell peppers,
carrots, tomatoes, pole beans, butter beans, pinkeye purple hull peas,
zipper beans, snap beans, banana peppers, jalapeno peppers, speckle beans,
eggplant, watermelon, cantaloupe, onions, Sunflowers. But, I am sure I am
missing a few. Map of where each veg is and road leading to them even inside
the rows vehicles are able to drive through. Most importantly bring your own
5gal. bucket, they charge $8.00 for what ever is in the bucket no matter
what is in it. It was great fun and great for the whole family well worth
the drive. Of course except for the corn at $8.00 a bucket. I would have
came out smelling like a rose if I had paid for each ear of corn. I managed
to put 20 ears of corn in a 5gal bucket, but they actually charge .20 cents
per ear of corn. I felt jipped because I should have paid .20 cents for each
corn instead of them charging for the 8.00. "
Comments from a visitor on
August 02, 2008: "I found this farm this year and would like to tell
everyone how great this farm is. They have a variety of vegetables such a
corn, peppers, peas butter beans, eggplant, and tomatoes. The fields are
clean with walking and driving paths. You drive in and pick to your hearts
content. The only problem is trying to leave. There is so much to pick its
hard to quit. Everyone is extremely friendly and the prices are great. Their
tomatoes are some of the best I have ever had. It was well worth the drive.
I canned over 100 quarts of tomatoes in various ways . Told you it was hard
to leave, there were so many big beautiful tomatoes I just could not help
myself. Also they have already picked for you watermelons, tomatoes,
cantaloupe, corn and onions. If locals have not tried this farm they need to
do so next year, they won't be disappointed. "
