Find a local pick your own farm here!

Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Alaska?  Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Alaska, 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. Beware of copycat websites (such as the one that starts with "pickit" and the one that ends with ".farms"; they do not update their information, they just steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China), so theirs are usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly! I put dates to indicate when we last received an update from each farm, and I make updates daily (each farm as their info changes). See the customer and farmer menus at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!

And if you know of any I missed and want to add them or correct the information, please let me know!

What's in season in February 2018, and other timely information:

Notes for February 2018: The northern half of the U.S. (and most of Canada, of course) are under snow. So, the crops to pick are pretty much limited to Florida, Texas, southern California and a few other areas of the Deep South.  Citus, for one, is a crop that is usually available now; and in those areas, soon also strawberries and blueberries.Check your area's copy calendar (see this page) and call your local farms for seasonal updates.

We also have a website for both Valentine's Day information, facts and fun and one for St. Patrick's day (including great recipes for corned beef, Irish stew, etc.)

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!

Next year, don't miss an Easter Egg Hunt for your children: See our companion website to find a local Easter Egg hunt!

We also have home canning, 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.  They have all copied their information form 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, please write me!

    A visitor writes on July 27, 2014: "I stopped going to Pyrah's several years ago when I encountered a sign saying we could not go anywhere near a specific area because it had just been sprayed with pesticides. I recently emailed them to see if they had stopped using the pesticides, but they never responded. I was finally able to get someone to answer the phone after several calls. The girl I spoke to said "no we are not organic and yes we do use pesticides". I just don't believe the chemicals and pesticides somehow miraculously disappear from fruits and vegetables when they hit your table. This is a big concern to my family and we always do our best to buy organic only."
    Comments from a visitor on November 17, 2009: "I've been going there since I was a teen. My children have grown up knowing of the delights of picking veggies at Pyrah's. The growing season is short up here and I'm not much of a gardener but love the results of course. We highly recommend the experience. You can make a day of it. Combine it with a trip to the State Fair or visit the Reindeer Farm up the road too too. Have fun I know we do."
    A visitor writes: I wanted to let you know about the wonderful people I spoke to at Pyrah's. I didn't even know we had farms like this up here. Pyrah's is a PYO, open Mon 9-5, Tues-Saturday from  9-9, closed Sundays. They offer field trips for kids, just call ahead to schedule... only $3 per child!
