Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Florida?  Scroll down this page and select your region of the state for a list of U-Pick farms in Florida, 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.

What's in season in October 2017, and other timely information:

Notes for October 2017: Apples are in season now, as are figs,  and Fall raspberries are in season now. Tomatoes are going strong, although the crop is way diminished in rainy areas like the southeast.  Both early apples, like Gala, and mid season like Delicious and Honeycrisp are in season!

Note about strawberries in Florida: There are a few strawberry u-pick farms in Florida open during the entire season, which lasts from December through April). Most commercial farms do not open their fields to the general public until the end of the season, which is usually in April (depending on the weather). 

NOTE: The exit numbers on the Interstates have changed, but we have no way of knowing what the new correct exit numbers are until the farmers correct their listings; so be sure to ask when you call the farms!
