Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Southwest Arkansas? Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Southwest Arkansas,
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just steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China), so theirs are usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly!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!

South Kratz Road, Donaldson, AR 71941. Phone: 501-384-2486. Open: Monday
through Saturday from 8am to 5pm from sometime in May until the first of
October. Comments from a visitor on October 11, 2008: "I love this farm.
The owners are friendly and the farm is clean and neat. The picking is
controlled so that you are not picking behind someone else or in a row that
was recently picked. Rides to and from the picking areas are available. They
are proud of their products and for good reason. You can also opt to buy
fruit that has been picked, if you are busy, and the quality is as good as
if you picked yourself. Call for Muscadines because the crop can go through
October after they "officially" close for the season. Sani-cans are
available. I don't know about the organic question. They take checks and
cash. (I have never asked about credit cards) Crafts are available with
other products such as: farm fresh eggs, jellies and jams, honey, bread
mixes, plants, etc..." (ADDED: October 11, 2008, suggested by a visitor)
