Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in North-Central Maine? Farms are open and safe! Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in North-Central Maine,
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 If you find anything outdated or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 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

Comments from a visitor on October 06, 2012: "We called this
orchard the day before to verify that they still had apples. After being told
they did, we showed up to find no apples in sight, and no one answering the
"please ring for service" bell. After walking around the orchard for some
time, we managed to pick 20 or 30 apples. When we finally found someone to
talk to, she insisted they did have plenty apples like they told me, and I
just didn't look hard enough. If it is even remotely late in the season,
skip this orchard, unless you want to get yelled at for being too stupid to
find apples that aren't there."
