Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Alberta, Canada? Scroll down this page and select your region of the state for a list of U-Pick farms in Alberta, Canada, 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. And for Fall fun, see these pages to find pumpkin patches and corn mazes.. and even Zombie paintball.
And if you know of farm I missed and want to add it or correct the information, please let me know!

There seems to be no commonly agreed-upon way to organize or subdivide Alberta,
so I've roughly adopted the Indian regions map, as it appears to group areas
by population centers as well as geography.
Yellow = Edmonton area
Light Orange / Tan = Camrose-Drumheller area
Light blue = Red Deer area
Gray = Calgary area
Blue-purple = Southeast Alberta, including Medicine Hat and Lethbridge
Blue = Northwest Alberta, including Grand Prairie and Athabasca
Green = Northeast Alberta, including Fort McMurray
Orange = Southwest Alberta, including Banff, Jasper and Rocky Mountain House
