Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Upper Peninsula of Michigan? Farms are open and safe! Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Upper Peninsula of Michigan,
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 If you find anything outdated or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!
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anything out-of-date, wrong or not working -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

What's in season in October 2020, and
other timely information:
Notes for October 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
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
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
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.
