Find a local pick your own farm here!

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steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China), so theirs are usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly!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

  • Woodlands Maple Syrup at MacPhee's Orchard - Uses natural growing practices, Maple Syrup
    5151 Launching Road, Cardigan, PE C0A 1G0. Phone: 902-583-3203. Directions: On Route 311, 10 kilometers east of Cardigan, PE Open: Monday to Friday - noon to 6 pm, Saturday and Sunday - 10 am to 6 pm. We use natural practices, but are not yet certified Organic. Payment: Cash, Check.  In 1998 we started Woodlands Maple Syrup. Our Maple Syrup uses a traditional method of production: Maple sap collected in buckets, gathered by hand from over 450 Sugar Maple Trees and a wood fired evaporator. The sugar season usually begins in mid March and can last into late April during a late spring. The average season lasts three to four weeks. Visitors are welcome. It is recommended to make an appointment as "sugaring" is weather dependent and it is difficult to predict any more than two days ahead if we will have any sap to process into syrup.
