Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Southwestern Mississippi? Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Southwestern 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just steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China), so theirs are usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly!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 December 2017, and other
Notes for December 2017: Frosts and freezes are upon us
in many areas, and one field may be unhurt while one a mile a way can be
damaged, so keep that in mind as you read the following: Apples are in season
now, as are figs, and Fall raspberries are in season now. Tomatoes are
going strong if frost hasn't happened in the field Late Apples, like
Fuji's should be plentiful now. You can see
a complete list of apple
varieties, their ripening dates and best uses here. And if you have a left
over pumpkin, you can
easily turn it into a Thanksgiving pie, pumpkin cheesecake, cookies, muffins and
more, see this page!
And of course you can find
farms, on our related website.
