Find a local pick your own farm here!

Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Alaska? Farms are open and safe! Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Alaska, 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 If you find anything outdated or inaccurate, see the customer and farmer menus (as appropriate) at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!

New! Pricing information - We now have a pricing guide to help you know what the typical prices are for each crop. Let me know when you see price changes! In 2022, you can save money by picking your own and canning your own, but brace yourself for steep price increases, which are affecting EVERYTHING! For quality, taste, nutrition and value, you still can't beat most PYO farms. If need need large quantities for canning, ask if they have "seconds"
 If you are having a hard time finding canning lids, I've used these, and they're a great price & ship in 2 days.

New! Road tripping and camping is a great way to have a fun, safe and inexpensive family trip. The national and state parks and monuments are open, and campgrounds usually cost between $10 and $40 per night. September to November is the best camping weather.  See our new website Road Tripping and for tips, tricks, guides, checklists and info about parks, monuments and other places to visit.

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   I'm making updates for this year as fast as I can - if you find anything out-of-date, wrong or not working - please let me know! This website is supported by purchases you make through the links to products on Amazon. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

What's in season in January 2023, and other timely information:

Notes for January 2023: The northern half of the U.S. (and most of Canada, of course) are under snow. So, the crops to pick are pretty much limited to Florida, Texas, southern California and a few other areas of the Deep South.  Citus, for one, is a crop that is usually available now; and in those areas, soon also strawberries and blueberries. Check your area's copy calendar (see this page) and call your local farms for seasonal updates.

Children's Consignment Sales occur in both the Spring and Fall  See our companion website to find a local community or church kid's consignment sale!

Next year, don't miss an Easter Egg Hunt for your children: See our companion website to find a local Easter Egg hunt!

We also have a website for both Valentine's Day information, facts and fun and one for St. Patrick's day (including great recipes for corned beef, Irish stew, etc.)

We also have home canning, preserving, drying and freezing directions. You can access recipes and other resources from the drop down menus at the top of the page or the site search. 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!

    A visitor writes on July 27, 2014: "I stopped going to Pyrah's several years ago when I encountered a sign saying we could not go anywhere near a specific area because it had just been sprayed with pesticides. I recently emailed them to see if they had stopped using the pesticides, but they never responded. I was finally able to get someone to answer the phone after several calls. The girl I spoke to said "no we are not organic and yes we do use pesticides". I just don't believe the chemicals and pesticides somehow miraculously disappear from fruits and vegetables when they hit your table. This is a big concern to my family and we always do our best to buy organic only."
    Comments from a visitor on November 17, 2009: "I've been going there since I was a teen. My children have grown up knowing of the delights of picking veggies at Pyrah's. The growing season is short up here and I'm not much of a gardener but love the results of course. We highly recommend the experience. You can make a day of it. Combine it with a trip to the State Fair or visit the Reindeer Farm up the road too too. Have fun I know we do."
    Comments from a visitor on July 02, 2016: I wanted to let you know about the wonderful people I spoke to at Pyrah's. I didn't even know we had farms like this up here. Pyrah's is a PYO, open Mon 9-5, Tues-Saturday from  9-9, closed Sundays. They offer field trips for kids, just call ahead to schedule... only $3 per child!
