Find a local pick your own farm here!

Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Riverside County, California?  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. 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just steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China), so theirs are usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly!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!

    Comments from a visitor on February 22, 2011: "This is a family run farm where you can go into the orchards 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. "
