Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Seminole County, Florida? Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Seminole County, Florida,
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. If you find anything outdated or
inaccurate, see the customer and farmer menus (as appropriate) at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!
Remember to always check with the farm's own website or facebook
page before you go - or call or email them if they don't have a website or
Facebook page. Conditions at the farms and crops can change literally
overnight, so if you want to avoid a wasted trip out there - check with
the farm directly before you go!
And if you know of any farms I missed and want to
add a farm, please let me know!
I'm making updates for this year as fast as I can - if you find
anything out-of-date, wrong or not working -

Updates for March 2019
Notes for March 2019: Not much growing outside at this
time of year, unless you live in southern California, southern Texas, Florida or
along the Gulf coast where citrus are ripe, and believe it or not, the blueberry
and strawberry season in those areas is about to start. See your state harvest calendar
. And this is a good time to learn how to preserve foods ahead of the season,
like making applesauce or jam. See our comprehensive list of
home canning, jam and jelly
making, preserving, drying and freezing directions. You can access
recipes and other resources from the drop down menus at the top of the page or the site search.
It is also a great time of year and easy to
make your own ice cream,
even gelato, or low fat or low sugar ice cream - see this page. If you have any questions or suggestions,
feel free to write me!

Comments from a visitor on May
12, 2013: "They are open seasonally and close once the
weather here gets to hot. That means Pappy's Patch typically opens around
the end of December and closes around the end of April. We picked fresh
strawberries there this past spring at least once a week. The berries were
great and the people that run it are wonderful."

yummy blackberries, some blueberries - though this is only his first harvest
