Find a local pick your own farm here!

Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Northwest Colorado?  Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Northwest Colorado, 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just steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China), so theirs are usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly!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 March 2017, and other timely information:

Notes for March 2017: The warm winter means strawberries will be EARLY this year! Move the dates ahead by 2 - 3 weeks on our croip calendar for strawberries.  See your state's crop availability calendar for more specific dates of upcoming crops. Stored US apples are still  available. 

Easter will be April 16, 2017 - Farms, churches and schools have egg hunts! See our companion website to find a local Easter Egg hunt!
