Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in New South Wales and ACT, Australia,? Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in New South Wales and ACT, Australia,,
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 If you find anything outdated or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!
Pricing information - I am building a pricing guide to help you know what
the typical prices are for each crop.
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anything out-of-date, wrong or not working -

is nestled on the banks of the Hawkesbury River, along Singleton Road
only 15 minutes from Wiseman's Ferry. The farm is bounded by the
Hawkesbury River and Marra Marra National Park. It is a peaceful place
to be, away from the hustle and bustle of the City. It has been a Pick
order femara Your Own orchard for 14 years and has developed with the
help from our customers. We charge an entry fee of $5.00 per car and
thereafter you only pay per kg for what you pick. Ford's Farm is a Pick
Your Own citrus orchard specialising in Mandarins. We have four
varieties of Mandarins available during our picking season, they are the
Satsuma, Imperial, Emperor and Hickson Mandarins. Other citrus fruit for
picking are Tahitian Limes, Lemons, Cumquats and Kaffir Limes. The
first mandarins available are the Satsuma (a juicy and seedless fruit).
This year they are in abundance with branches touching the ground with
the number of fruit growing, they are however a little slower in
ripening this year, so some are not ready for picking. The Imperial is
a well known mandarin, they are very popular, but unfortunately this
year we only have a small crop, this happens occasionally, but what we
have is delicious, they will not be ready until mid June. Limes are
plentiful and are perfect for picking and we have an abundance. There
are only have a small number of lemon trees. Later in the season will be
the Naval Orange, Emperor and Hickson mandarins along with the Nagami
Cumquats which we expect to be ready in mid June. Please note we are
only open on weekends, not on weekdays during our season. We charge an
entry fee of $5.00 per car and thereafter you only pay per kg for what
you pick, but you must pay for all the fruit you pick. We have available
Satsuma and Imperial Mandarins, Tahitian Limes, Nagami Cumquats, some
Oranges and Lemons. We charge by the kg for what you pick and the price
is available on request. (UPDATED: May 14, 2019, JBS)
