Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Florida? Scroll down this page and select your region of the state for a list of U-Pick farms in Florida,
sorted by county. Farms offering 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?").
If they have a website, the name will be in blue and underlined; click on it and it will open their website.
And if you are looking for a
farm stand, roadside stand, farm market or local farmer's market, see our new
website, dedicated to those! See your
crop availability calendar for specific dates of upcoming crops.
If you know of any I missed and want to
add a farm,
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anything out-of-date, wrong or not working -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!
What's in season in April 2019, and other timely information:
Notes for April 2019: Not much growing outside at this
time of year, unless you live in southern California, southern Texas, Florida or
along the Gulf coast where citrus are ripe, and believe it or not, the blueberry
and strawberry season in those areas is about to start. See your state harvest calendar
. And this is a good time to learn how to preserve foods ahead of the season,
like making applesauce or jam. See our comprehensive list of
home canning, jam and jelly
making, 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.
It is also a great time of year and easy to
make your own ice cream,
even gelato, or low fat or low sugar ice cream - see this page. If you have any questions or suggestions,
feel free to write me!

Note about strawberries in Florida:
There are a few strawberry u-pick farms in Florida open during the
entire season, which lasts from December through April). Most commercial
farms do not open their fields to the general public until the end of the
season, which is usually in April (depending on the weather).
NOTE: The exit numbers on the
Interstates have changed, but we have no way of knowing what the new correct
exit numbers are until the farmers correct their listings; so be sure to ask
when you call the farms!
