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.

What's in season in December 2017, and other
Notes for December 2017: Frosts and freezes are upon us
in many areas, and one field may be unhurt while one a mile a way can be
damaged, so keep that in mind as you read the following: Apples are in season
now, as are figs, and Fall raspberries are in season now. Tomatoes are
going strong if frost hasn't happened in the field Late Apples, like
Fuji's should be plentiful now. You can see
a complete list of apple
varieties, their ripening dates and best uses here. And if you have a left
over pumpkin, you can
easily turn it into a Thanksgiving pie, pumpkin cheesecake, cookies, muffins and
more, see this page!
And of course you can find
farms, on our related website.

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!
