Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Riverside County, California? Farms are open and safe! Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Riverside County, California,
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 If you find anything outdated or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!

add a farm, please let me know!

and pick your own grapefruit, pink and white, lemons, tangeloes and oranges.
Nothing fancy, just the best tasting citrus ever at reasonable prices. Sold
by the pound. I paid 20 cents a pound for the sweetest pink grapefriuts
ever. Bring your own containers. They supply long picking poles. A little
hard to find but well worth it. "
