Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Northern Rhode Island? Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Northern Rhode Island,
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 "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as well as some 20-somethings trying to make a quick buck), so theirs are always out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly.
Since 2002, 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!
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 2018 as fast as I can - if you find
anything out-of-date, wrong or not working -
please let me know!

July 13, 2013: "The owners were friendly (unusual for this
part of the country),supplied us with bucklets to pick and pointed us to the
bushes. The berries were delicious. They didn't restrict us to a certain
area, but told us to go to the area and the bushes that suited us. They
advised us where the best picking was. but we could go anywhere and pick
whichever berries we wanted (Again, somewhat unusual for New England!)"

Comments from a visitor on September 11, 2011: "Every year my family and I
have gone apple picking at Pippin Orchards. Over the last few years we've
become a little wary about going there as the workers have been very strict
about where you can pick and about using the poles for reaching the apples
up high. This year was absolutely ridiculous. First we were told that the
Cortland apples "weren't ready" this week, but that they would be ready next
week. Another employee ended up confirming that some were ready on one end
of the farm so we could pick there. Really? How can it be that those trees
are ready and the others are not? We asked for the pole pickers so we could
get apples of any kind of decent size and they told us they had none and
gave us such a hard time about the getting any at all. Again, really? So no
one's going to be able to get the apples from the tops of the trees this
season? Finally, as we've just finished picking the apples, the pole pickers
magically start appearing. We'd been completely lied to the whole time. If
it wasn't for the kids getting into the picking, I'd have gotten a refund
and gone somewhere else. Pippin Orchards is playing too many games. We'll be
going to another orchard in future years for sure."
Comments from a visitor on July 06, 2011:
In response to the complaint about the minimum: "Staff cannot leave the shop
to escort to trees, 5 pound minimum due to customers making alcoholic
beverages and is more or less for experianced farmers. Shop employees do not
make the pies themselves, so lack exact expertise in baking of the pies. "
Comments from a visitor on September 26, 2010: "This farm is located in
Providence County and I think their should be a disclaimer following there
info about apple picking. They have the gawl to charge a 5 lb. minimum of
apples per person (this includes babies!!) So 2 adults, a 3 year old and a 6
month old is told they have to pick a minimum of 20 lbs of apples!! There
trees are also not labeled so you wander around trying to figure out what is
what, and than trying to find someone who works there to help you is
ridiculous! When asking about a particular type of apple we were told, "oh,
those are waaaaay in the back, here and there" and didn't even offer to take
us to them. Also when the "helper" was confronted about the amount of apples
expected to be taken they went on to say they take 8 lbs of apples to make a
pie and that 5lbs. per person really weren't alot of apples" What!!!??? I
make a pie with 8 -10 apples MAX!! and there would've only been 2 adults
eating them! There are plenty of other orchards in the nearby area and I
think that people should be made aware of this monstrosity that Pippins is
claiming!! This in by no way is good customer service it's a rip off.
