Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Louisville and western central Kentucky? Farms are open and safe! Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Louisville and western central Kentucky,
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 If you find anything outdated or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 - I am building a pricing guide to help you know what
the typical prices are for each crop. Let me know when you see price changes!
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 Camping.com 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anything out-of-date, wrong or not working -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

a visitor on March 18, 2020: Bray Orchards is no more as Bray; they
were bought last July by Pharm CBD, though they may still sell some fruits
and vegetables. It is now PHARM Roadside Market at Bray's. I believe they
are now open through the year. I don't know if they do any U-pick though now
would be out of season. CBD oil products are a big part of the business now.
