Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Mountaineer Country area of West Virginia, 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?").

If you find anything outdated or inaccurate, see the customer and farmer menus (as appropriate) at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!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   I'm making updates for this year as fast as I can - if you find anything out-of-date, wrong or not working - please let me know!

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 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.

  • Floral Acres - Uses natural growing practices, Blueberries,
    RR 1 Box 26E, French Creek, WV 26218. Phone: 304-924-6462. Email: dinah@floralacres.com. Open: Call for hours and availability; the season for picking lasts from the second week of June 'til the first week of August, depending on how cold the Spring was, and whether we received a late frost or not.. Directions: See their website for directions. Payment: Cash, only. Our focus now at Floral Acres is our U-Pick blueberry operation. We currently (2010) charge $1/pint. Because we have so many bushes, with lots of different varieties; the season is long. These blueberries are organic, as the only thing we do to them is fertilize the ground, and mow the grass. We furnish buckets for picking and ice water - but you might want to bring your own straw hat for those hot summer days.
    Comments from a visitor on July 06, 2010: "The owner is very sweet and helpful, they have been in business for a while and know what they are doing. However, you are better off to show up earlier in the season rather than later. We came one year in mid August, and while we did manage to pick berries, there were much less than when we go in July. They raise all of their blueberries with organic practices. They used to do daylillies but are getting out of those and are more focused on blueberries. The farm is located less than a mile from the French Creek Game Farm, so it could be made into a good family outing of picking blueberries and visiting the game farm"
