Find a local pick your own farm here!

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 If you find anything outdated or inaccurate, see the customer and farmer menus (as appropriate) at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!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

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   I'm making updates for this year as fast as I can - if you find anything out-of-date, wrong or not working - please let me know!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 September 2020, and other timely information:

Notes for September 2020: Summer is almost here! Strawberry season is finished in all but the far northern ands cooler areas. Blueberries, blackberries are in season in most areas, also tomatoes, peaches and most vegetables . Check your area's copy calendar (see this page) and call your local farms for seasonal updates.

Now, more than ever, going to a farm, being outside, away from crowds, getting fresh, local produce, makes more sense than ever before! It's a fun, safe and educational to pick some fresh berries, fruit and veggies and more, then come back here to learn how to freeze, can, make jam, salsa and much more! Of course, check with the farm before you go, both to check on crop availability and hours.  We also have a state-by-state guide to Farm COVID-19 requirements here.

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, using similar sounding names.  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!

Canners, both waterbath canners and pressure canners, are getting hard to find as people are doing more home canning than ever before. You can still get them online (see links at left) but prices are going up as the less expensive models are selling out.  Food dehydration is becoming a popular and inexpensive alternative; see this page about drying your own fruits and vegetables and where to get a food dryer.

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!

See these pages to find a local Strawberry Festival, or a Cherry or cherry blossom festival or a Blueberry festival. Some may still be held in 2020.

    Comments from a visitor on March 21, 2010: "Just wanted to post that we have taken my grandchildren (and friends) to this farm several times and were always VERY hospitably received. Both children and adults enjoyed a wonderful experience each time we went. Not mentioned is the fact they sometimes have a baby lamb on premises and the children love to pet and feed him. Thanks for your site!! "
    Comments from a visitor on April 26, 2009: "we found a pick-your-own farm thanks to your website. the idea was to build memories with our children (under 10) and enjoy some fresh fruit on a picnic in the same day. in fact, the state park just down the road was perfect and we invited our neihbors along for the ride. everything was perfect...except for being yelled at and lectured while on the picking excursion. really. the greeters (hired for the day) were great. friendly, informative and helpful. they did leave out one key detail-- that the owner didn't want folks to step over the rows of berries. our neighbor did so twice in an effort to photograph her kids. she didn't step on any bushes, not bother any other families. however, the owner's daughter (old enough to know better) ran over to rip her a new one. not nice. not neccessary. in the time spent yelling and threatening to make us leave, she could have simply explained the rule or just asked us to stay in a single row. no big deal. i guess the pressure of the day may have contributed to the "emotion" of the scolding. perhaps she had just given the same speech for the umpteeenthtime that day. it just seemed very odd and unexpected -- certainly not the genteel easy-going "country" hospitality we had imagined finding there. oh well, guess that explains the need to hire greeters. perhaps it owuld be wise to have the farmers leave for the dasy that tourists come in to pick. may be easier on everyone. we loved the learning our kids got and the fresh food-- could have done without the "big city" gripe out session."
    Response from the farm on April 27, 2009: "in response to "Comments from a visitor on April 26, 2009"  i would like to reply.  yes, we do have rules.  maybe they were not told or did not totally understand the rules.  that is the reason that when i first spotted the gentleman neighbor jump the row (yes, no jumping over rows is rule #1.....for safety reasons and to protect the plants and irrigation under the plastic), he was told not to jump the row.  several minutes later the lady neighbor jumped the row and was told not to jump the row.  then, she does it again.  that is when they were told that if it occured again they would need to leave the field.  by the way, the kids did great! on a lighter note, both the family day on april 17th and april 25th were a huge success.  we had a great turn out and, overall, the people were wonderful.
