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steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China), so theirs are usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly!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

going still in northern and cooler areas, but are mostly finished in the Deep
South. Blackberries, figs, and raspberries are in season now. Tomatoes are
going strong, although the crop is way diminished in rainy areas like the
southeast. Strawberries are finished, except in the far north, and if the
farm planted Day Neutral varieties. Early apples, like Gala, are about to start!
