Notes for September 2017: Blueberries and peaches are going still in northern and cooler areas, but are mostly finished in the Deep South. Blackberries, figs,  and raspberries are in season now. Tomatoes are going strong, although the crop is way diminished in rainy areas like the southeast.  Strawberries are finished, except in the far north, and if the farm planted Day Neutral varieties. Early apples, like Gala, are about to start!

If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to write me! It is easy to make your own ice cream, even gelato, or low fat or low sugar ice cream - see this page. Also note, there are many copycat website listing U-pick farms now.  They have all copied their information form here and usually do not ever update.  Since 2002, I've been updating the information every day but Christmas; so if you see anything wrong, please write me!

Search any page on PickYourOwn.org

It's easy to search the entire pickyourown.org web site!  The fastest way to find a farm in your area is to just go to your state's page (see the list below) and use Ctrl-F on that page to search for a specific name or word.  But if you want to search all pages, recipes and seasons for a particular unique word or phrase, just enter the words in the box below!

Custom Search

For example, if you are looking for a farm in California to pick strawberries, just 

  1. enter California strawberries, and don't add commas, dashes, etc. - you do need a space to separate the words!
  2. DON'T use quotes, unless you are searching for an exact phrase, generally NOT a good idea...
  3. then click the search button!

Similarly, if you are searching for a particular farm, and know the name, city or street, try entering that.  The search engine will search for any word(s) or phrase that appears on the web site. Obviously, then if you enter a common word like "strawberries", you'll get meaningless results, since many farms in almost every state and country offer strawberries. Important tip: if you are looking for a farm that ends in 's or s; try both: for example, for "Smith's Farm" in Ohio, try Smith's Farm Ohio; if that doesn't find it, try Smiths Farm Ohio.
