Find a local pick your own farm here!

Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Southeast New Jersey?  Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Southeast New Jersey, 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just steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China), so theirs are usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly!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 February 2018, and other timely information:

Notes for February 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 seasonal updates.

We also have a website for both Valentine's Day information, facts and fun and one for St. Patrick's day (including great recipes for corned beef, Irish stew, etc.)

Children's Consignment Sales occur in both the Spring and Fall  See our companion website to find a local community or church kid's consignment sale!

Next year, don't miss an Easter Egg Hunt for your children: See our companion website to find a local Easter Egg hunt!

We also have home canning, preserving, drying and freezing directions. You can access recipes and other resources from the drop down menus at the top of the page or the site search. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to write me! It is easy to make your own ice cream, even gelato, or low fat or low sugar ice cream - see this page. Also note, there are many copycat website listing U-pick farms now.  They have all copied their information form here and usually do not ever update.  Since 2002, I've been updating the information every day but Christmas; so if you see anything wrong, please write me!

I was looking for a "new" place to U-Pick strawberries, as the place I used to go has become rather regimented, and has way too many rules... Decided on Hallick farm and had the best time, great strawberries, great staff, GREAT prices!!! WE called in between the rain storms and they always gave a good update, (it rained a lot and I called a lot) and honest as to conditions and amount of berries. She has jars and pectin too, saved me a trip to the store twice. CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK FOR SWEET CORN!!! But I really wanted to write and thank you for your site, (I have so far only canned fruit jams, but am ready to move on to more.) You really have a knack for those links-- they are great for anyone who is not to sure how to do something. Your explanations are so clear, and your writing style so "normal" that I feel like I'm talking to a friend. I'm not the most computer savvy person and you have it all set-up so EASY!!

    Comments from a visitor on August 01, 2010: "I wanted to take my family to pick fruit today so I contacted the above farm at the number listed on your website (609-758-1133) and got no answer all morning long. I emailed the email address listed on your website ([email protected]) and asked them "Are you open today?" This is the response I received: "YES WE ARE OPEN FOR U PICK right NOW, BUT WE ONLY HAVE U PICK PEACHES AND NECTARINES AT THE MOMENT. WE WILL START PICK YOUR OWN APPLES AT THE END OF THE MONTH". After receiving that response we drove out to their farm. We received a very cold welcome and when we asked if we can pick our own fruit they said "we don't do that anymore". We asked them about the email we received - and they said that the person who sent us the email is not there right now. We were shocked at their rudeness and hope that you will advise other families of their obnoxious behavior.
