Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Northeast New Mexico?  Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Northeast New Mexico, 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. If you find anything outdated or inaccurate, see the customer and farmer menus (as appropriate) at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!

Remember to always check with the farm's own website or facebook page before you go - or call or email them if they don't have a website or Facebook page. Conditions at the farms and crops can change literally overnight, so if you want to avoid a wasted trip out there - check with the farm directly before you go! And if you know of any farms I missed and want to add a farm, please let me know!   I'm making updates for this year as fast as I can - if you find anything out-of-date, wrong or not working - please let me know!

What's in season in February 2019, and other timely information:

Notes for February 2019: Not much growing outside at this time of year, unless you live in southern California, southern Texas, Florida or along the Gulf coast where citrus are ripe, and believe it or not, the blueberry and strawberry season in those areas is about to start. See your state harvest calendar .  And this is a good time to learn how to preserve foods ahead of the season, like making applesauce or jam. See our comprehensive list of easy home canning, jam and jelly making, 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. It is also a great time of year and easy to make your own ice cream, even gelato, or low fat or low sugar ice cream - see this page. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to write me!

    NM-442, La Cueva, NM 87712. Phone: 866-281-1515. Email: [email protected]. Open: The U Pick It Raspberry Field is typically open from mid-August until mid-October; THE CROP IS TOTALLY WEATHER DEPENDENT and it has been open as early as the later part of July and has closed as late as Halloween; see their website for current information. Salman Ranch features a U Pick It Raspberry field. Directions: See their website for directions. Payment: Cash, Visa/MasterCard . No herbicides or pesticides are used on the crop, and customers often eat their berries straight from the vine. The U Pick It Field is a perfect family outing. CHILDREN LOVE IT; many of them have never had the opportunity to actually harvest the food they eat.  DOGS, on leashes love to pick up the berries dropped on the ground, especially labradors, and more particularly, yellow ones.  
    A visitor writes on September 07, 2013: "I was very disappointed that I drove 200 miles to pick raspberries at this ranch. Upon our arrival we were told that we could only pick 6 pounds of berries. I have never been to any you pick it, that limited the amount you can pick and I complained to the field person and the store clerk before I left. I would not have driven 200 miles if they had posted the limit on their web site which I reviewed this morning before left. Please post and advisory that people who are driving a long way should call first to see if they have set a limit, that makes the drive not worth the time or cost. "
