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steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China), so theirs are usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly!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

in those areas, soon also strawberries and blueberries.Check your area's

Comments from a visitor on October 09,
2009: "This place is amazing. It's one of my favorite places to visit
and so beautiful. It's family-run and so friendly. Not sure on hours,
I think 9am-5pm. .I don't think they have restrooms. It's a big
orchard and you can walk through anytime. You can stay in the
cottages, stop by the local farmer's market to see their stand, they
have a super cute country store. They take credit cards. They don't
raise crops organically but they do use IPM. Their apples are heirloom
varieties. " (ADDED: October 09, 2009,

pitter available set up on a table, and the kids had great fun turning

unlocked the gate. Just a cash deal for each bucket, no restrooms or
