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 "Eatwell", "pickit" and the ones that ends with ".farm"; they do not verify or update their information, they just steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China, as well as some 20-somethings trying to make a quick buck), so theirs are always out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly I make updates daily (each farm as changes are reported, or I find it). 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 a farm, please let me know!   I'm making updates for 2018 as fast as I can - if you find anything out-of-date, wrong or not working - please let me know!

    Comments from a visitor on October 13, 2008: "I was extremely disappointed by this farm and the pick-your-own pumpkin patch. The property itself was not well taken care of. There was "stuff" everywhere. From broken down farm equipment, to broken refrigerators and old farm trucks. The hayride left much to be desired. The distance was about 400 yards, lasted 10 minutes and included old tractors and combines as its only scenery. The pumpkin patch was hardly that. It was about 20 pumpkins randomly placed in a field. The pumpkins were already cut off the vine and it didn't look like this was where the pumpkins were even grown. The only animals to be seen on the entire farm were a few pigs and they had an old tractor right in the middle of their pen. We purchased our sad little pumpkins and thought we might check out the produce building before we left, even though we were extremely dissatisfied with the hayride and pumpkin patch experience. The produce building/farmers market was not any better. The barn where all this was set up was full of JUNK!!! Literally full of it. I think out of the entire size of the barn, only about 25% was being used to sell produce, ever though you could see the piles and piles of stuff everwhere. There were lots of pumpkins and gourds to choose from but all the other produce looked pretty terrible. I was really looking forward to a nice fall day, with pumpkins and farm animals, and this place was AWFUL. I would not recommend it to anyone. "
    Comments from a visitor on October 14, 2008: "this place was not at all the way they make it sound! it was a mess i would not go back there. the place looked as if some had used it for a dump. i have to agree with the last note made this place is not what it is said to be. "

A great variety of stuff: Hot peppers, bell peppers, blackberries, zucchini, squash, green beans, pumpkins, raspberries, roma and round tomatoes. Good pricing too.

    Comments from a visitor on September 29, 2009: "Love it! Great blueberries, nice folks, and GREAT prices! I think they are around $2-3 a pound! I think you can also buy pre-picked, but we always pick our own. That is half the fun! I know they plant different varieties of blueberries so they have a crop for a long time (we always pick in June or July, but I think they go all the way until September). I do believe they are organic and I think they do have a restroom you can use (Taffy Douglas, the owner, sets up her blueberry "business" in her basement, where you go to weigh the berries, etc., after picking them) "

    Comments from a visitor on July 30, 2012: "Branstool Orchard in Licking County - fruit wasn't too bad, however they were pricey. My kids and I came home with an itchy rash all over our arms and legs that lasted most of the day. I figured it was an allergic reaction to what ever they spray on the trees. Make sure you wash the fruit! Wish they would have told us that they had wagons you could borrow, it would have made the walk up and back down a lot easier. We'll be skipping this orchard next year."

This all paled to the quality of the apples!! The trees were loaded with lots of beautiful apples. The grounds are well maintained and it was easy for the kids and I to pick our fill. I would recommend Cherry Hawk Farms to everyone! I've been to a lot of orchards in the past, but now I've found a new home to pick all of my apples in the future."
    Comments from a visitor on September 20, 2009: "I had the best experience at this beautiful orchard today. Their fruit is beautiful. The property is clean and well kept. It is obvious they take a lot of pride in their trees. My family really enjoyed it. We will return not only later this year but hope to year after year!"

    Comments from a visitor on October 13, 2012: "We went there today (10/13/12) for the first time and LOVED it! The pumpkin patch is a short walk or ride from the main farm and the pumpkins were plentiful. The facility was very clean and very well-kept. My kids (5 and 1) had a blast with the children's activities. We will definitely be back next year! Thanks for making us a new family tradition!"

    "This farm was delightful. We wanted one where we got to go into the fields, so that narrowed it down a bit, but they also had some by the main barn if you wanted to just pick one without the walk. Playing in grain bins was like sand boxes with a inch or so of whole corn kernels with pails, shovels and trucks. Our three years old didn't want to leave. We went on a week night and it was not crowded but enough new friends for the kids to run around with. For it being a farm it was very clean. "
    Comments from a visitor on August 11, 2010: "We LOVE this farm for fall/pumpkin patch! They are family owned farm with wonderful, helpful, friendly folks. Very family/children friendly. We go every fall for the kid's hay maze and blow up play area as well as the ride out to the pumpkin patch. The pumpkin doughnuts a awesome and the prices are reasonable. We are a family with 5 children so price is important to us. We also go every year for strawberry and raspberry picking, yummy. Give them a try - you won't be disappointed!"

    Comments from a visitor on June 30, 2010: "We love this place. It is easy to pull in from the road to park. They family who owns it is kind and always helpful when you ask questions. My children have a blast there. We pick and then they swing on the swings by the grass lot where we park. They send out emails to let you know when the fruit is plentiful. They also allow you to "sample" as you pick :o) and this is great when you have little ones who put one in their basket and one in their mouth! "
