Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Arizona? Scroll down this page and select your region of the state for a list of U-Pick farms in Arizona, sorted by county. Farms offering 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 they have a website, the name will be in blue and underlined; click on it and it will open their website. And if you are looking for a local farm stand, roadside stand, farm market or local farmer's market, see our new website, dedicated to those! See your state's crop availability calendar for specific dates of upcoming crops.

Notes for May 2018: Spring is here and that means Strawberry season is upon us! It started in February in Florida, Texas, southern California; then March along the Gulf coast, April in the Deep South and west coast, May through much of the country, and June in northern areas. Blueberries. Are next, about a month later. Of course, cool weather crops, like Rhubarb, asparagus and greens should be available almost everywhere. Check your area's copy calendar (see this page) and call your local farms for seasonal updates.
We also have 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. 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 Since 2002, I've been updating the information every day but Christmas; so if you see anything wrong or outdated, please write me!

Note about berries in Arizona: As far as I know, there is only one
pick-your-own farms for strawberries, raspberries, blackberries or blueberries
in Arizona - see Yuma County. If
you hear of any others that are currently in business,
please let me know!
Comments from a visitor on September 10, 2009: "just a reference to your comments about berries in Arizona. The rim country is literally covered in wild blackberries and I regularly go up every season to harvest to my hearts content. While a little more out of the way, Payson, Pine, Strawberry, and that area up there has lots of creek systems and has blackberries in abundance every single year I've been up there. Likewise, for an easier trek, simply heading up to Sedona into Oak Creek Canyon, you can just park by the side of the road (north of Slide Rock state park) and literally right by the side of the road are acres upon acres of fresh wild blackberries. I typically harvest in the 2nd or 3rd week of August. Likewise, the creek systems near Strawberry has lots of wild strawberries (where the town got it's name) While not a farm, might be worth mentioning."
