What's in season in September 2021, and other timely information:

Notes for September 2021: Autumn is upon us and that means you'd better hurry to get blueberries and peaches; apples are already in full swing. Some crops continue until frost, like raspberries, blackberries, figs, corn and tomatoes. Check your area's crop calendar (see this page) and call your local farms for seasonal specific updates.

See these pages to find a local Apple festival, and other festivals. We have a guide to apple varieties and a guide to peach varieties. Also recipes, canning and freezing directions for apples, blueberries, peaches, tomatoes, corn etc.

See our comprehensive list of easy 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. 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 from 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  Since 2002, I've been updating the information every day but Christmas; so if you see anything wrong or outdated, please write me!

Also, he does not use pesticides on any of the produce he grows."

    Comments from a visitor on July 16, 2012: "I've been picking blueberries every summer with , from their website)my kids for over 10 years, and our experience at Mr.Mark Ransbotham's blueberry farm was the best picking we have ever done here in Georgia. Our usual farms were either closed or our of berries, so I called Cool Springs before heading out to Gainesville. Mr. Ransbotham was so kind and informative on the farm that I was sure I had found a hidden jem. The drive and the farm are beautiful. We walked into the office where Mr. Ransbotham told us about where to pick the berries and gave us harnesses that held our buckets as we picked. The kids were hopeful and excited to see the field where we would be enjoying our morning. I was so very impressed that the owner walked us out to the section and kindly told us that if we couldn't find enough berries then we could go to his other field. The blueberry bushes are young and approximately 3 feet tall and just loaded with gorgeous blueberries. The kids loved how they were spaced and how nicely they were spaced. Our favorite part was the fact that several of the bushes were in the shade and we could either sit on the ground or use one of the orange buckets to sit on as we picked. When it was time to pay for our berries (only $10 for a bucket) Mr. Ransbotham told us all about the different varieties that we picked. In the fall and spring you can purchase blueberry bushes which is a wonderful service. In addition to blueberries, the farm offers cold drinks to make the travel home a little easier. We will definitely be back, and I strongly recommend this blueberry as perfect for families of all ages. I truly wish I had known about this little piece of paradise before now!"

    Comments from a visitor on July 01, 2009:
    "We went to the Washington farm location that is in Watkinsville to pick blueberries, and they were so kind. Me and my family had SUCH a good time. My daughter in only 18months old and at a bunch of blueberries and they didn't get mad or upset, even though I said I would pay for more than what we picked, they told us not to worry about it. It was really family friendly and we will DEFINITELY be going back. "

    A visitor writes on May 26, 2019: "The trip out to Buffalo Creek Berry far is so worth your time! Cameron and Laura are the nicest, loving people and you can't help being entertained by Elsie and her berry covered face, Savanna laughs at her all the time! You can see the love of the earth in this family by the care Laura takes with each plant or fruit and Cameron works so hard at keeping his land healthy and free of toxins, pesticides and harm. The strawberries were new this year, the rows were well maintained, the old fruit was removed to help prevent fungus and bugs, such a pleasant experience our group of ladies had. We treated ourselves with homemade strawberry ice cream afterwards! Support this working farm by spending some time out here, the proof is in the taste of these berries, you will not find more flavorful berries! You and your body will appreciate them too! Downtown Lexington was a wonderful stop too, the Rowdy Rooster carries the fruit if you can't make it all the way. Dr. Rhonda Mills"
    A visitor writes on June 30, 2013: "I visited the Buffalo Creek Farm today, June 30, 2013 with my four kids, ages 7 - 10 (yes, that includes a set of twins) and we thought the farm was just wonderful. We chose Buffalo Creek because they had peaches, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries and with four kids, they couldn't agree on just one kind, so this was perfect. The day we went, the peaches were not "pick your own," but they had some picked for you to buy. They did have rows and rows of blueberries - we could have picked all day long, and we didn't get there until almost noon because we drove in from Atlanta. We also picked full gallons of raspberries and blackberries! Now my only problem is what to do with all of the beautiful fruit we picked! The owners couldn't have been nicer. They were wonderfully sweet to my children and didn't mind if they ate some of the berries as we picked. Also, there were real bathrooms, not port-a-potties. The whole place was beautifully maintained and lovingly kept with bushes overflowing with fruit. Cannot recommend this farm enough! We'll be back next year!"
    Comments from a visitor on July 18, 2010: "My wife and I were celebrating her birthday today, July 18th 2010, and she wanted to go to a peach farm as well as a blueberry farm. we checked all over the internet and found several within 75 miles of Suwanee,Ga. After checking out several of the farms and the comments left by customers we were concerned that we might go to a farm where the owners/managers would not have good customer service, or the farm might be in need of some lawn, poison ivy maintenance. Boy, were we surprised when we arrived at Buffalo Creek Berry Farm. The farm was in very good condition. The peach trees were in excellent condition and the blueberry bushes had been properly trimmed for the maximum output of berries as well as no poison ivy, and no tall grass on the farm. You could tell that the owners really cared about their farm as well as you, their customer. This farm is the best hidden secret this side of Georgia. Always call first, but you will not be disappointed with their peaches, blueberries or their true hospitality. "

    "Hard Labor Creek Blueberry Farm is a wonderful farm and I really don't believe that I will ever go to any other. I have grown blueberries before in my home garden, so I really appreciated the fact that they listed the varieties available at their farm. Once there it was a totally pleasant experience. The rows were mowed neatly down and in between- That made so there were a lot less bugs and especially many less ant hills to potentially step into. There were virtually no mosquitoes-and the owner said he believed that was due to the fact that they have a lot of purple martins (since they put up purple martin houses!) They also provided buckets and plastic bags. It was just a real nice experience. There were at least 20 cars and people were not running into each other in the rows--blueberries were beyond plentiful. Children were running up and down the rows squealing with delight. It was a really nice place. Should I say really again? They should get an A***, plus the husband/wife team were very nice, sincere people."
